Narrative description of project:
At the time of this project Uganda was developing its new Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP III). In parallel, GoU planned to do an evaluation of the performance of the health sector during the previous HSSP II, as part of its AHSPR FY09/10. In June 2010, a JANS team of the IHP+ did a review of an incomplete draft of HSSP III and submitted a draft report. BTC had already decided to send a team of budget support experts to participate in the JRM, together with the BTC health sector advisor and the attachés who are based in Kampala. The mission complemented and reinforced this team as a health sector expert.
