Annual exercise between MoH and DPs
A tool to connect closely with the implementation of the five year health plan
30 donors provided information
Bilateral donors rank the highest in providing information for the matrix (43.3%), the next is INGO. The matrix is still lacking of programs and projects from UN which may underestimate the all funds for health sector.
By the budget scale, 10 largest DPs are: WB, ADB, AP, Austria, KfW, EC, GB, the Nertherlands, Embassy of Finland and USAID. The first three largest DPs have 50% of the total budget registered in 2010.
Proportion of fund supported under the type of grant is decreasing, replaced by other types such as loan or mix.
Milestone 1 - Develop the Matrix of development partners’ support to the health sector in Vietnam
The workshop on TA on harmonization to be organized in 2011 in three principles:
Field visits to local provinces with TA activities to examine the advantages, disadvantages, and needs to have more contribution to TA workshop
DPs with experiences with TA will contribute more ideas and inputs based on their practical activities
Linkages with the implementation of the five year health plan
Establish a working plan to incorporate the TA activities with the five year health plan regarding aid effectivenessincluding : the preparations (core team meeting on proposed areas, kickoff activities and workshops, component designs, TWGs on TA and etc), implementation for 2011 and following years, M&E…
Call for support for this significant activity

Base on the 5 year health plan and result of MS 1
Contribute to the “financing gap analysis” for the 5 year health plan
MS1, MS 6 and MS 9 are complementary: information from DP needs to be timely, accurate and transparent in order to assess the degree of alignment with 5 year health plan
Proposed to combine 2 MS together
Strong political willing and commitment and closely direct the promotion of aid effectiveness
Better coordination and networking among sub-national levels and line ministries on health issues
Active and effective supports from the international community, especially the development partners such as WHO, GTZ, Unicef, EC, UNFPA, PEPFAR
Strong resource mobilization of heath aid among macro and micro levels and from international aids
HPG is a huge forum with wide sector approaches that may be difficult to coordinate and adjust interests and benefits
Different development partners with different philosophy of funding mechanism, timing, monitoring and evaluation, which may be difficult to allocate fund and process the activities
HPG performance depends on MoH leaders’ and development partners’ schedules, subsequently it is hard to well foreseen the dates for meetings
