Financing and Investments

Money is a fundamental unit of the capacity of States to deliver on their respective commitments and obligations to health and rights. But money is not neutral or innocent. It is political and ideological. It has an agenda. It reflects preferences, prejudices, and priorities. This section analyses the financing landscape for sexual and reproductive health and rights of minority populations in Africa in relation to domestic expenditure on health; international and bilateral funding of health programmes; programmatic emphasis and priorities; and trends in international development assistance.
