NASA Training and Technical Support for East and Southern African countries
The National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) resource tracking methodology is designed to describe the financial flows and expenditures using the same categories as the globally estimated resource needs. This alignment was conducted in order to provide necessary information on the financial gap between resources available and resources needed, and in order to promote the harmonization of different policy tools frequently used in the AIDS field.
The resource tracking process follows the financial transactions from their origin down to the final destination (i.e. the beneficiaries receiving goods and services). NASA is not limited to tracking health expenditures, it also tracks non-health expenditures such as social mitigation, education, labour, justice, and other sectors related to the multisectoral HIV response.
