What is health budget advocacy? Why is it important? And how do you do it?
This practical guide provides the answers. It starts with budget basics – how health budgets are funded, how the budget cycle works and who’s involved.
And it goes on to provide guidance on the key stages of health budget analysis and advocacy:
• developing an advocacy strategy
• building strategic alliances
• identifying your research questions
• getting the information you need.
Case studies showing health budget advocacy in practice are included throughout the guide. And there are practical exercises to get you started on analysing a health budget.
