Yes, Budget Formulation and Budget Execution rate are the challenges in Myanmar Health Sector because we are still using the input based line-item budgeting system for health service delivery and program based budgeting was used by donors and UN Agencies. So Health Program Managers are usually not familiar with line item budgeting system for their program planning and implementation, more use to be with program based budgeting.
