With the purpose of ensuring a coordinated and adequately resourced HIV and AIDS response, Uganda, through the Uganda AIDS Commission, committed to undertaking a National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) to track actual HIV and AIDS-related spending from public, international and private sources for the financial years 2017/18 and 2018/19.
The initiative was financially supported by the Embassy of Ireland, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Uganda Health Systems Strengthening (UHSS) activity. NASA describes the flow of resources from their origin down to the beneficiary populations. The financial flows for the national HIV and AIDS response are grouped in three dimensions: finance, provision and consumption. Expenditure is reconciled from these three dimensions using data triangulation.
