Rate of Exchange Data for the calendar years were collected in the currency of the donor agency. S. 8 Data Verification All disbursed funds were accounted for at the donor agency level. To avoid double counting, approximately 80 percent of all funds disbursed were cross-checked with recipients/ implementing agencies or against contracts issued by the donor agency. After compiling data by donors and recipients/implementing agencies, all finance or program managers interviewed were sent a copy of the data sheets for verification.

Sixty-one percent of aid for the health sector went to the South-Central zone (which accounts for 52 percent of the population), 19 percent went to Puntland (which accounts for 20 percent of the population), while 20 percent went to Somaliland (which accounts for 28 percent of the population). The level of coordination in the health sector is mixed. Through various working groups, the CISS has played an important role in coordinating donors and implementers on technical matters. It also succeeded in uniting partners, including Somali authorities, into a CCM that has been legitimized by the GFATM.

In 2006, MSF had a country budget of US$24 million (Michalski 2007), which is 100 percent funded through own resources. This amount is considerable and should be taken into consideration when reviewing the data presented in Table 6.
