Governance and aid effectiveness

Since 2002, Official Development Assistance (ODA) for health per capita/year in the WHO African Region has increased from US$ 2.7 to US$ 9.8 in 2010. Most of the increase has been however targeting MDG6, with all other health development priorities together receiving in 2010 less than 50% of the resources disbursed for MDG6. Effective policy dialogue at national level between governments and national and international development partners is critical to increase aid flows, their effectiveness and their alignment with country national priorities and processes.
