Kwazi Mbatha, a CEGAA Researcher/Trainer for the BMET project,was joined by a member of TAC’s uMgungundlovu District community mobilisation team to discuss challenges and opportunities for HIV/AIDS and TB budget monitoring at local levels in South Africa. Relating primarily to CEGAA’s Budget Monitoring and Expenditure (BMET) project, conducted in partnership with the Treatment Action Campaign and entitled "Giving power to the community: Community monitoring of HIV/AIDS and TB spending in two districts in South Africa", this project worked towards increasing the delivery, accessibility, affordability and quality of treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS and TB, thus ensuring that ARVs and TB treatments are available as life-saving and prevention mechanisms. The pilot and secondary phase of the project sought to achieve the above by empowering communities and citizens towards a common understanding of health care delivery and budget issues and collaborative corrective action for optimal health care services at local level.
