The current exercise (fiscal year 2012/13) is Namibia’s fourth round of Health Accounts and is the first round conducted using the SHA 2011 methodology; the prior three rounds covered 11 years of spending between 1998/99 and 2008/09. These prior rounds have been critical to informing the design and review of the country’s Health Sector Strategic Plan. Health Accounts estimates of spending in priority areas such as reproductive health have informed resource allocation discussions. Further, combined with information from other sources regarding the geographic distribution of health resources, Health Accounts estimates have helped the Ministry of Health and Social Services develop a resource allocation formula that is currently under review for implementation.
