Government Hospital Financing Flow Study, Democratic Republic of Congo

CGA studied hospitals’ funding flows and financial management in the DRC. This involved document reviews and the design of a survey. CGA interviewed at 15 hospitals across five provinces. During these interviews, CGA identified barriers to hospitals to access government funding. CGA synthesised findings and developed a set of systematic recommendations, with an action plan for how these blockages can be overcome. CGA provided insights that help towards the development of long-term systemic structures whereby government funding can effectively flow to health service delivery units across the DRC.

CGA undertook a qualitative study aimed at understanding funding flows and financial management of hospitals in the DRC. The aim of the study was to provide insights on the development of long-term systemic structures whereby government funding can effectively flow to health service delivery units across the DRC, including identifying potential barriers preventing hospitals from accessing government funding.

After conducting document reviews, designing a survey and carrying out interviews at 15 hospitals in five provinces, CGA provided clear systematic recommendations, with a supporting action plan for how these existing blockages to receiving funding flows could be overcome.
