Budgeting and Financing
Financing is the processes or mechanisms that provide resources for a programme and services. Financing in the context of a country’s reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health care essential commodity security includes any source of resources —including national and donor funding for the purchase or procurement of essential necessary commodities. In a decentralized setting, financing may come from a district or province, depending on the country context. A lack of sufficient and continuous financing and failures in accounting systems for RMNCH commodities have been widely reported, with consequent limited access to essential RMNCH services.
