Health Care Governance & Financing

Sikika aims to realize three broad objectives, namely increased budget efficiency, transparency as well as improved oversight function at both central and local level.

To achieve these, a continuous engagement is done with key boundary partners – the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, the Prime Minister’s Office – Regional Administration and Local Government Authorities and the Social Services Committee of the Parliament to influence changes in the above stated objectives.

Sikika believes that improved budget transparency will increase the participation of citizens in the budget process and therefore increased ownership of the process.

Improved efficiency in terms of allocation and use of resources in the health sector as well as proper oversight contribute to delivery of better and quality health services in the country.
