Rethinking Public Finance for Children: Monitoring for Results is an initiative of the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, the Economic Policy Research Centre, and UNICEF Uganda. Leveraging on Government’s commitment to promote transparency and accountability in the use of public funds, this joint effort aims to monitor the effective delivery of national programmes affecting children. Within this framework, the on-line National Social Service Delivery Equity Atlas “The Atlas” provides an intuitive approach to analyze the relationship between financial resources and sector outcomes.
This new approach provides an interactive platform to analyze budget trends at regional and district levels with a focus on the impact of public investments on social outcomes like school completion, antenatal care or hand-washing. In doing so, it provides a clear blueprint of where public resources are reducing socio-economic inequalities among children and improving children’s lives, and where they are not.
