Abstract:Aligning aid to partner countries' development priorities, and supporting and using partner countries' own systems and institutions builds countries' capacity to manage their own development processes. This chapter outlines the progress made in using and strengthening these systems in the health sector. The chapter further outlines the advances and remaining challenges in increasing the amount of aid that is channelled through the country's own systems, and the impact on the health sector of these reforms, or lack thereof.
