Namibia 2014/15 Health Accounts Report

Namibia 2014-2015 Health Accounts Report

This report presents the findings of Namibia’s Health Accounts estimation for the fiscal year April 2014 through March 2015 (2014/15), and analyzes the implications of these findings for key policy decisions. This round of Health Accounts is the fifth round, and the second round that was conducted using the System of Health Accounts 2011 (SHA 2011) methodology.

Namibia’s Health Accounts now cover a total of 13 years of spending including 1998/99 to 2008/09, 2012/13 and 2014/15. Health Accounts capture spending from all sources: the government, nongovernmental organizations, external donors, private employers, private medical aid schemes, and households. The analysis breaks down spending into the standard classifications defined by the SHA 2011 framework, namely sources of financing, financing schemes, type of provider, type of activity, and disease/health condition.
