Years of stability, strong governance and sound fiscal management have improved health systems and outcomes in Botswana. As donor aid is decreasing, the government has committed to take on a higher share of the funding for HIV/AIDS activities, and Abt provided technical assistance to support the development of policies to achieve this goal. We helped the government:
- Develop a comprehensive health financing strategy.
- Implement and institutionalize a health accounts exercise.
- Conduct an actuarial analysis to determine how to effectively finance a sustainable universal health services package.
The work from these activities will inform the development of a national health insurance blueprint.
