National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) offers an improved understanding of the current levels of spending and resource allocation across various programmes and interventions. The Uganda AIDS Commission (UAC) conducted the last NASA in Uganda in 2012. The last NASA covered the financial years 2008/2009 and 2009/2010.
The UAC entered into a partnership with Makerere University School of Public Health (MUSPH) to implement the NASA starting with 3 financial years: 2013/2014, 2014/2015, and 2015/2016; and to set up a system to routinely collect NASA data to facilitate timely availability of HIV expenditure information for the period 2015/16-2019/20. The phase one NASA is expected to lay a foundation for the AIDS spending assessments for 2016/17 -2019/20 in an institutionalized approach. In this partnership, UAC provides overall oversight and coordination of the NASA while MUSPH is responsible for study design, data collection, and analysis and reporting.
The MUSPH, although very experienced in undertaking research, is implementing resource tracking for HIV the first time, and therefore requires Technical Assistance during the first phase of implementing; for quality assurance.
The overall objective of technical support is to review and support improvement of quality control measures to ensure integrity of the NASA and adherence to international guidelines and standards. The specific objectives of the technical support are:
