National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) Classifications
The National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) resource tracking methodology is designed to describe the financial flows and expenditures using the same categories as the globally estimated resource needs. This alignment was conducted in order to provide necessary information on the financial gap between resources available and resources needed, and in order to promote the harmonization of different policy tools frequently used in the AIDS field.
"NASA Classification and Definitions" presents the classification to produce National AIDS Spending Assessments (NASA),which was designed for tracking resources of the national responses to the HIV epidemic. NASA seeks to ascertain the flows of funds used to finance national responses to the HIV epidemic.
Therefore, the resource tracking process follows the financial transactions from their origin down to the final destination (i.e. the beneficiaries receiving goods and services). NASA is not limited to tracking health expenditures, it also tracks non-health expenditures such as social mitigation, education, labour, justice, and other sectors related to the multisectoral HIV response.
