QUESTION 2: Which Health Interventions were Prioritized by Policy Planners Through Financial Aid Allocations? Aid financing to the health sector, especially from 2004 onwards, favored vertical programs: Polio, TB, HIV, and Malaria accounted for 50 percent of total aid in 2006. ■ The polio program is the number one priority in the Somalia health sector. 1 million/year. The above figures show the political commitment of the donor community but also raise questions about the opportunity costs of the eradication campaign.

To identify donors (multilateral, bilateral, and others), the Somalia Health Sector Donor Reports were reviewed and the list of donors was verified with HSC members. In total, 26 organizations were identified (see Appendix). All but one agency responded giving a total response rate of 96 percent. Of the 25 agencies surveyed, 22 (88 percent) provided relevant data and three (12 percent) did not have health specific information to be used for the study. Quantitative data were collected between March and May 2007.

Received each 14 percent. An additional 27 percent was allocated to activities in support of all zones (see Chapter 3). There is a close relationship between population distribution and health expenditure by region over the period 2000–06 (see Figure 27). If countrywide expenditure are omitted or proportionately distributed across zone, the allocations are remarkably close to the proportion of the population in each region, as estimated by UNDP (2006). Expenditure appears to have been proportionally slightly higher in South/Central Somalia, a not surprising finding, given the gravity of the humanitarian situation in that part of the country.
