Has sector DAH increased under SWAp?
(1) sector_DAHit= αi + δSWApit-1 + β1malariait-1 + β2HIVit-1 + β3TBit-1+ β4IMRit-1
+ β5log(GDP/capita)it-1 + β6gov_effect it-1 + β7corruptionit-1 + μt + εit
Note: the impact on both absolute levels of Sector_DAH and also the proportion of total DAH allocated to the sector is estimated.
Has SWAp changed allocations between other key health areas?
(2) tb_DAHit= αi + δSWApit-1 + β1malariait-1 + β2HIVit-1 + β3TBit-1 + β4IMRit-1 + β5log(GDP/capita)it-1 + β6gov_effect it-1 + β7corruptionit-1 + μt + εit
Comparable specifications estimated for DAH directed to HIV, malaria and MNCH. NCDs omitted due to lack of meaningful burden of disease control for full period.
