Analytical summary - Health financing system
The Government of Zimbabwe has always prioritized the social services sector. The Ministry of Health and Child Welfare has remained in the top five ministries in allocation by Government. The Public sector introduced the Public Finance Management system (PFMS) which was introduced in the MoH & CW in 2004.
In 2005, the Results Based Management system was introduced to link finances to service delivery. After the announcement of the budget estimate by the Ministry of Finance, funds are leased quarterly to sector Ministries as funds accumulate.
The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority is the parastatal responsible for revenue collection. The Auditor General monitors the use of government resources on quarterly basis.
