Accelerating Sustainable Domestic Health Financing in Africa


This report is a presentation that was given at the 4th Conference of African Ministers of Health (CAMH4), 4 to 8 April 2009, Addis Ababa by Rotimi Sankore, Coordinator Africa Public Health Alliance & 15% Campaign. It discusses the need for African countries to move toward spending at least 15% of their budgets on health in order to build viable health systems. Without adequate resources, and efficient management of those resources, all health systems will fail and eventually grind to halt. The slow progress on increasing sustainable health financing in Africa has led to Africa’s disease and health burden reaching record‐breaking levels especially with infectious diseases and Maternal and Child death.

    Sierra Leone

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
