Four methods have previously been used to track aid for reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH). The new Mushkoka2 algorithm includes innovations
to produce accurate, predictable, transparent, and up-to-date estimates to analyze donor and recipient perspectives on use of donor aid for RMNCH. New findings show that 46% of aid in 2017 was dedicated to child health, while only 19% was allocated towards maternal and newborn health. These findings provide an important basis for holding donors accountable for their commitments and for assessing whether aid is sufficient, equitable, and effective.
