This methodological note provides an overview of the System of Health Accounts 2011 framework used for the 2013/14 health accounts (HA) exercise. It provides a record of data collection approaches and results, analytical steps taken, and assumptions made. This note is intended for government HA practitioners and researchers.
The Botswana 2013/14 HA exercise was conducted between July 2015 and September 2016. The study covers the 2013/14 fiscal year (1 April 2013–31 March 2014). In mid-2015, the HA team, with representation from the Government of Botswana, the Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project, and the World Health Organization (WHO), began primary and secondary data collection. Collected data were then compiled, cleaned, triangulated, and reviewed. Data were imported into the HA Production Tool (HAPT) and mapped to each of the System of Health Accounts (SHA) 2011 classifications. The results of the analysis were verified with the Health Financing Technical Working Group on 9 October 2016 and the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MoHW) management on 10 October 10 2016. Participants involved in the production and validation of the results, and recommended for future HA workshops, are listed in Annex A.Download
