Key Principles OWNERSHIP – putting national partners in the driving seat ALIGNMENT – donors align with partners development strategies (JCSS) HARMONISATION – donor actions more transparent and collectively effective MUTUAL ACCOUNTABILITY – government and donors jointly review progress, take action

Success Story: Kyrgyz Health Sector • National Strategy, strong national leadership • Implementation supported by donors, (5 do so on-budget – $15M pa, plus technical assistance) • No PIU - all financial management functions done in-house • Improved MOH / MOF relations – better budgeting, auditing and procurement management • Joint monitoring of Manas Taalimi – third Health Summit last week
