Background

In 2013, the Financial Capacitation for Provincial HIV Managers (FIN-CAP) programme was launched by HE2RO and the Centre for Economic Governance and AIDS in Africa (CEGAA) to help capacitate national and provincial government departments in the areas of financial management, costing, budgeting, and expenditure tracking for HIV, based on the team’s experience in costing the Provincial Strategic Implementation Plans (PSIPs). To reduce duplication or overlap with similar initiatives, it was essential to map the institutions involved in technical support for financial management and to understand their programme areas and tools and the government departments they are working with. We conducted internet and literature searches to identify these organisations and their projects. A directory of health economists working in sub-Saharan Africa compiled by the Health Economics and AIDS Research Division (HEARD) at the University of KwaZulu Natal provided a database of actors in the health financing field more broadly.
