National Health Accounts (NHA) is recognised as a valuable tool in policymaking and decision-making within the health sector. The method helps identifying the sources of funds, how the funds are channelled, providers, and for what functions they are used. NHA is of specific interest for developing countries since these countries often face a considerable burden of disease and shortage of resources. This paper gives a presentation of the process of the Mali NHA. Over the years there have been a few attempts to provide a comprehensive picture of the flow of funds within the Malian health sector.
