P4H CFP initiated process of developing common understanding and consensus building at the WHO office Namibia on the ACT-A process guide for budgetary dialogue

Following the introduction of the ACT-A process guide to the P4H Country Focal Person (CFP), the CFP initiated the process of consensus building at the WHO Country Office Namibia.

Discussions with World Health Organization Representative (WR) Namibia:

The P4H CFP conducted detailed discussions with the WR Namibia on the ACT-A process guide for budgetary dialogue. The WR welcomed the initiative for Namibia but was very specific and categorical about this support not just being like any short-term parallel support but the importance to look on the support to build institutional framework in Namibia so as to promote sustainable change.

Participants: LUKWAGO Robinah (CFP, Namibia), SAGOE-MOSES, Charles (WR Namibia)

Date of meetings with WR: 12th October and 11th November

Discussion with the Incident Manager:

Discussion was also conducted with the Incident Manager COVID-19 response (https://epidemicem.org/static/75e26f3f689303e76b23d06ea4ed2d2b/2-who-2020-ims-structure-for-health.pdf) for Namibia at WHO office on the ACT-A process guide for budgetary dialogue. The Incident Manager was very excited about the potential to support specific work on Covid-19, thinking about the things related the vaccination campaign because there are quite a number of vaccines available in Namibia but still there was a lot of hesitancy in the uptake of vaccine, vaccines expiring, supply chain and distance issues. Namibia is a vast country in terms of geography, so getting the vaccines and health care to the grass root is also a challenge, even beyond COVID-19 vaccination. While the Incident Manager was hard pressed with the COVID-19 planning and response and the health sector review, there is an opportunity of continued discussion on potential to support COVID-19 analytics in the country through the ACT-A.

Participants: LUKWAGO Robinah (CFP, Namibia), (Incident Manager COVID-19, WHO Namibia)
