This is an interesting report on the situation in the AHs. The disparity across the AHs in all aspects of these assessed areas is the most significant observation and lesson from the report. It confirms the problems that were identified in an earlier report on 10 AHs. In fact, it duplicates much of the findings of the earlier report, particularly with regard to the PIT and local revenue sources. I am not sure how appropriate comparing websites features across the AHs tells you much about their overall performance. What I would have liked to know is whether any of these AHs had received technical assistance and training from the various donor organization programs, particularly DOBRE. A comparison of the AHs based on this factor would be useful to see if there any impacts and improvements from receiving this assistance. If all of them have received technical assistance and training, this would be a rather disappointing result.
