Manage finances and strengthen your organization
Expanding HIV prevention programmes requires sufficient funds, skilled people, and strong organisations that can implement well. It is equally important that young people are empowered to participate and have a say in decisions on programme planning and budgeting.
This statistical reference manual provides a comprehensive description of the financial flows in health care. It provides a set of classifications of health care functions, a list of providers of healthcare goods and services, and financing schemes. The SHA 2011 tracks all health spending in a given country and generates consistent and comprehensive data on health spending. It can also be used as a monitoring and evaluation tool. The WHO web page includes links to the SHA 2011 manual, and to guideline documents for its implementation.
