Public finance for children

UNICEF- and Government-developed equity-focused budget briefs

Background

UNICEF and the Ministry of Finance and Planning of the United Republic of Tanzania have been jointly analyzing public expenditure on children since 2016. The 2018 edition of budget briefs is the second in the series.

These briefs focus on analyzing and monitoring budget allocations in key social sectors like health, education, WASH and HIV/AIDS, especially since these affect children.

They provide an overview of the public expenditure, and emphasize on critical dimensions such as spending trends, execution performance, equity aspects, fiscal decentralization, and sources of funding.
