The USAID-funded Health Systems 20/20 project conducted a Public Expenditure Management Review (PEMR) for the health sector in three Nigerian states: Sokoto, Cross River, and Nasarawa. The PEMR examines the flow of funds across government levels down to the service providers and reviews the overall governance environment of public expenditure management. This report presents the findings of the PEMR in Cross River state, located in southern Nigeria.
The activity complements the PEMR conducted in five other states (Kano, Kaduna, Enugu, Jigawa, and the Federal Capital Territory) under the Department for International Development (DFID)-funded Partnership for Transforming Health Systems Phase II (PATHS2) project. This activity combined with the PATHS2 project PEMR will produce a richer base of information on public expenditure systems for policymakers in Nigeria. The ultimate purpose is to assist the government of Nigeria and its various agencies in improving public financial management systems in order to ensure an efficient and effective use of health resources.Download Now
