CEGAA Budget Policy Brief No.5, 23 February 2012

R1 trillion public spending in South Africa in 2012/13: What's in there for health and HIV/AIDS? South Africa's 2012 Budget features increased funding for health, HIV/AIDS and TB, and additional allocations for hospital revitalisation, expansion of health infrastructure and human resources. Distribution and use of these national allocations by provincial health structures should translate into increased staffing, strengthened service delivery systems, improved financial, programme management and monitoring capacity and systems, and ultimately, improved health outcomes.
