Knowledge Centre

To enable communal learning, CEGAA seeks to contribute to a broader knowledge base on critical issues that influence the achievement of improved economic governance for health and HIV/AIDS in Africa.

In this section, we profile several concepts that are central to this field of work, explaining the meanings of key terms, and giving examples of how CEGAA’s projects and partnerships help to build a body of evidence, skills and reflections on financial management of the HIV/AIDS response and health in general. We also provide access to a range of CEGAA-originated and other related resources.

Budget Advocacy

CEGAA conducts capacity-building for advocacy to assist civil society organisations in effective mobilisation, using collaborative research findings as strong evidence for advocacy messaging. We establish partnerships with CSOs and local government, so that communities may exert influence on government implementation of the budget at local level to strengthen health care systems and improve healthcare spending and its outputs.
