The global financial crisis has led to a slowdown in growth of funding to improve health in many developing countries
Published in Health Affairs, December 2011
The numbers for years 2010 and 2011 are preliminary estimates and are based on the most current data available from sources, including budget documents and financial statements; in some cases, researchers obtained data on 2010 disbursements and estimated 2011 disbursements from correspondence with different channels of assistance.
In addition, stagnation in UN funding may pose risks to several health focus areas in which these channels play an important role, including maternal and child health, noncommunicable diseases, and tuberculosis. Finally, while the newer funder GFATM has channeled large amounts to DAH over recent years, it announced that it would make no new grants for the next two years due to declines in donor funding, so DAH from GFATM may not expand as rapidly as it has in the past.
