Access to public services such as education, healthcare and sanitation are essential for the overall well being of people.  Public services provide the most common interface between people and the state, and their functioning shapes people’s sense of trust in and expectations of government. In order for governments to provide such services, public funds need to be managed well. Yet many African countries face great challenges when it comes to the good governance of public finances.
