Area of Expertise

Mamaye uses evidence to hold Governments at the National and sub-national level accountable to its promises. The group achieves this by supporting development of annual operational health plans and costing and advocating for inclusion in the budget, advocacy for participation of CSOs in all stages of the budget development process, analyzing and tracking expenditure on the health budget and use of evidence to engage the legislators.
