A Review of Health Sector Aid Financing to Somalia

A Review of Health Sector Aid Financing to Somalia
The study on the 2000–06 aid flows to the health sector in Somalia is a first attempt to fill a large gap of knowledge in this area. The primary objectives of the study were to assess how levels of donor financing varied over the years; which health interventions were prioritized by donors; and how evenly health sector aid was distributed to the different zones of Somalia. The overall aim of the study was to create evidence for donors, implementers and health specialists involved in allocation of financial resources to the Somali health sector. The study was conducted in close collaboration with the Health Sector Committee (HSC) of the Coordination of International Support to Somalis (CISS). HSC members were consulted prior, during and after the completion of the data analysis. The HSC endorsed the research protocol in February 2007, provided guidance on the sampling frame, reviewed and discussed the preliminary findings and provided feedback on the draft report. The results of the study are based on quantitative and qualitative data collected from donor organizations active in Somalia. The study focused on traditional donors, including bilateral, multilateral and others (GFATM and Red Cross/Crescent Movement). Twenty-six agencies were contacted and a response rate of 96 percent (n = 25) was achieved. Of the 25 organizations that responded, 88 percent (n = 23) provided relevant health sector data
