Since the start of the pandemic, BudgIT and Connected Development have been highly concerned on the use of funds especially COVID-19 and health sector strengthening resources. With support from Skoll and Hilton Foundation, BudgIT and CODE have been able to track use of public funds and private donations in nine African countries and we are working with multi-stakeholders in creating permanent dialogue mechanisms for health sector accountability.

This session aims to highlight the context around use of funds during emergency procurement and also how the OGP has helped shape vertical health sector accountability in selected countries. We plan to tell stories of four African countries (including gender lens) through a series of lightning talks on current impact and challenges. We would have institutional responses from the key institutional stakeholders as Prince Clem Agba, Minister of State for Budget and Planning in Nigeria.

Our outcome is to build conversations on the importance of mainstreaming social sector accountability and service delivery in the National Action Plans and also entrench permanent dialogue mechanisms. At the end of the session, all participants are expected to support a charter to engage governments, stakeholders and civil society back in individual countries on strengthening health sector systems through accountability with the OGP as a vehicle in achieving such objectives.
