Aloysius Ssennyonjo, Makerere University School of Public Health
Effective, sustainable, and large-scale multi-sectoral action ultimately comes down to how human and financial resources (both domestic and external) are aligned from national to local levels. In Malawi, budget and planning (and implementation) responsibility for a number of key areas of service delivery - health services, WASH, forestry, education, etc. - has been devolved to the District level. This has the advantage of creating a unified budget in District Implementation Plans (DIPs) submitted annually to national level. Were the described planning committees, operating apparently under Nutrition and HIV/AIDS, plugged into these District-level budget and planning processes?
We need to interrogate why partners walk back on their commitment such as stopping funding midway of implementation? How can interest in Multisectoral approaches be sustained?
Thank you, Patty.
Aliyu Usman Muhammad
why is it most NGOs prepare to recruit staff like health workers who are not working with government hospital? which break the capacity building and sustainability of the project
Thanks for this great webinar. Please placed the link for volunteering to present on June 29 in the chat. thanks
