This report describes a spreadsheet tool designed to inform the allocation of health service funding to district councils in Malawi. The methods seek to allocate funds between districts so as to provide the opportunity of securing equal access to services for equal need for the interventions contained in Malawi’s Essential Health Package (EHP).
