Analysis of the active health care of mothers and children

In order to gain insight into the implementation of the activities foreseen with the 2011 Program for active health care of mothers and children, we carried out an analysis about the extent to which the planned program activities are implemented and the funding foreseen for the realization thereof for the period from 01.01.2011 to 31.12.2011. The analysis was carried out through collection of publicly available information, by submission of 27 requests. The requests for access to information of public character were submitted to the Ministry of health of Republic of Macedonia, whereas the answers to the questions through the Ministry of health were provided by the competent medical institutions. 

The analysis includes the processing of collected data aimed to show the planned program measures and foreseen funds for their realization versus the conducted program measures and spent funds for their respective realization. Spent funds for the realization of the activities from the Program were established on the basis of the conducted program activities as stated in the answers from the competent institutions and the cost for each of the separate activities as stated in the budget of the adopted Program. In order to establish the efficiency in the implementation of planned activities aimed for the Roma communities from the Program for active health care for mothers and children, the analysis also included the manner of spending the budgeted funds included in the budget of the Program, so as to establish the percentage or amount of funds which are not used, and accordingly to establish the items, i.e. activities which are not completely realized. The findings of this analysis are presented in part one, i.e. under the implementation of the 2011 Program for active health care of mothers and children. 

Furthermore, we also provide an overview of the foreseen activities in the 2012 Program for active health care of mothers and children in order the specify the continuity and the efforts of the Ministry for increasing the coverage of Roma children with vaccination.

The second part of this analysis, i.e. the financial analysis of the Program for active health care of mothers and children, provides an overview of the respective budget for the period from 2010 to 2012. The budget of this Program was considered in respect of the budget of the Program for protection and prevention, the budget of the Ministry of health and the central budget. This approach was used in order to show the participation of the budget of the Program for active health care of mothers and children in the budget for preventive health care, the budget of the Ministry of health, i.e. the central budget. Despite this comparison, we also make an analysis of the sources of funding which is allocated for the realization of this Program, i.e. whether the funds come from domestic or foreign sources of funding.
