While treatment guidelines and the overall funding envelope for antiretroviral treatment in South Africa are decided at the level of the national department of health, the implementation of programmes is the responsibility of each of the nine provinces. In the past, implementation was jeopardized by the lack of capacity for financial planning, expenditure tracking and performance monitoring at the level of provincial HIV and finance managers. The FIN-CAP project, implemented by staff from CEGAA, the Centre for Economic Governance and AIDS in Africa, is aiming to change this, by improving financial information systems used in budgeting and planning for HIV services, training staff in using these tools, and monitoring budgeting and expenditure tracking processes in each province for up to three consecutive financial years.
