The UNICEF Budget Briefs analyse the size and composition of finances allocated and implemented across social sectors that are vital for the survival and development of children in Ghana.  These flagship publications are produced every year to well inform key stakeholders on the efficiency, equity and adequacy of previous spending and to advocate for increased effective spending in the forthcoming fiscal year. 

These Briefs also distill complex budget information so that the information is accessible to more stakeholders. The Briefs focus on the education, health, social and child protection, water and sanitation sectors. 

To ensure that more children can benefit from the right investment, the UNICEF Budget Briefs also review the prioritization of investments

For Every Child, prudent investments.
