Aid Coordination in the Health Sector: Examining Country Participation in Sector-Wide Approaches

Spencer Moore


Do countries undertaking sector-wide approaches to health development share certain common characteristics? Using independent sample t tests on national-level data, this paper examines if there are significant average differences between countries undertaking a sector-wide approach to health development (SWAp) and those countries that are not. The results of those tests indicate that there are significant differences between SWAp and non-SWAp countries. Such findings may be useful in understanding the current environment of donor-recipient partnerships.
