Captiva Africa LLC helps implementing agencies in public health improve their efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, and financial positions–allowing them to make better use of public funds.
Many countries have made commitments to strengthen their PFM systems and funding agencies are paying increasing attention to countries’ PFM performance when making decisions about funding commitments.
A key challenge for the funding agencies is to balance between fiduciary risk and assisting countries develop sustainable systems. In addition, there has been increased appreciation by funders of the importance of investing in assurance services. This, along with a focus on proactive grant management and preventative assurance interventions, mean that funding agencies are more intensively engaged with countries on fiduciary risk management issues.
One area of focus has been for the funders to support countries strengthen the financial management capabilities of the Ministries of Health (MOH) and finance teams or other teams in national and subnational departments of the Ministries of Health.
