Budget Allocation and Spending on Children in South Africa: Budget Briefs

UNICEF South Africa is proud to release its 2017 Budget Brief series, which examines spending and allocation trends in the education, social development, health and the national budgets. Our aim is to better understand how allocation and implementation decisions promote the social and economic rights of children. We have a particular interest in the equity and redress dimensions of public spending and how the government has improved programmes and services that benefit children. Our focus on children’s budgets has become more urgent in view of the public spending challenges and the increasing pressure on the government to conserve resources.
