The objective of the pilot PETS in Afghanistan was to track the flow of funds from the central level (from the Ministry of Finance [MoF]) to the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) to the 16 national hospitals of Kabul city. At each level, the survey investigated the budget processes of preparation, approval, allotment, transfer, utilization, and delays, as well as leakages in the budget process. It also looked into the autonomy granted to hospitals for the procurement of drugs and services at the decentralized levels, and challenges in the transition from a centralized to a decentralized procurement system in 2013. The survey also assessed the quality of service delivery, performance of hospitals and health workers, and staff and patient satisfaction. The MoPH collaborated with the USAID-funded Health Policy Project to conduct the survey.
