Audit of Selected Activities Funded Under USAID/Kazakhstan’s Health Program

Country: Kazakhstan
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No

During the past 2 years, Kazakhstan has sought to improve its record on health expenditures by significantly increasing its health budget and committing to partnerships with international organizations, such as the World Bank. However, the quality and efficiency of health programming remain quite poor. To address this issue, USAID will focus on health system reforms, to ensure the provision of quality, client-oriented, cost-effective primary health care services, and on programs to promote increased community involvement in the health system. USAID will fund programs to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS, expand the use of the Directly Observed Treatment Short-Course strategy for tuberculosis (TB) control, and improve maternal and child health. In its FY 2009 budget request, USAID/Kazakhstan requested $2.6 million to fund its health activities.

This audit will (1) determine whether selected activities funded under USAID/Kazakhstan’s health program are achieving intended results and (2) assess the activities’ impact.
