The Minister of Finance says discussions are underway with donors who are delaying their funding to the health sector to find a way foward.
Finance Minister Situmbeko Musokotwane said delays in funding to the health sector by some donors will affect the performance of the 2009 national budget.
He said this is because government is now moving funds from other sectors and directing them to health.
Dr. Musokotwane said the global financial crisis has also affected the budget.
He said the projected revenue has fallen by ten percent while foreign exchange inflows have reduced as a result of the financial crisis.
Dr. Musokotwane was speaking during a ZNBC Radio two programme -Government Forum.
Some donors have delayed funding to the health sector following revelations of financial abuse amounting to over K27 billion at the ministry.
