This report describes the key findings and policy implications of the Botswana health accounts (HA) estimation for fiscal year April 2013 through March 2014. Previously Botswana completed two rounds of HA; the first round, in 2006, covered fiscal years 2000/2001, 2001/2002, and 2002/2003; the second round, in 2012, was for fiscal years 2007/2008, 2008/2009, and 2009/2010. Botswana’s 2013/2014 HA is the first round produced using the System of Health Accounts (SHA) 2011 framework. HA provide details on health care spending flows and distribution from government, external donors, private employers, non-government organisations (NGOs), medical aid schemes and households. The analysis breaks down health care spending into the standard classifications defined by the SHA 2011 framework, namely source of financing, financing scheme, financing agent, type of provider, type of activity, and disease/health condition.
