Health Budget Advocacy Toolbox

To influence how much money is spent on health services in your country, it is important to engage in the budget cycle. Throughout the budget cycle, it is possible for advocates to influence decisions on what funds are allocated to health priorities, how much is actually spent, and track whether more money actually results in better health.

There are so many ways you can engage in the budget cycle to improve health in your country. Click on the download button to explore the budget cycle, how you can engage, and tools and training slides that can help you to advocate effectively for improved investment in health.

These tools and trainings have been used by E4A coalitions to improve funding for health across Nigeria, Kenya and Senegal. If you would like to learn how to use this toolbox to engage in the budget in your country, please get in touch with the E4A team,, who are able to provide training and support.
