July 17, 2021Evidence Briefs
- Triangulating health expenditure with disease burden estimates will give insight whether national health system resources have been spent in line with disease burden priority of the country.
- The purpose of this evidence brief is to evaluate the alignment of Ethiopia’s health expenditure (NHA 2013/14 and 2016/17) with the burden of disease estimates to inform resource mobilization strategies of the health care system in cognizant with epidemiologic transitions in Ethiopia.
- National Health Account (NHA) and Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD 2019) were mapped in this brief by reclassifying NHA diseases categories to the broader GBD categories; communicable, maternal, neonatal and nutritional disorders (CMNN), non-communicable disease (NCDs), and injuries.
