Blog Highlights Kaiser Family Foundation Event On Challenges Of Donor Coordination

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog reports on a Kaiser Family Foundation event titled “The Challenge of Donor Coordination in Global Health — What’s at Stake?” The blog notes, “In an environment of shrinking budgets and growing momentum toward a shift in aid to ‘country ownership,’ more than ever is at stake in figuring out who is doing what where, and what the actual outcomes of each effort are… That is why transparency — sharing information of spending, targets of that spending, and whether those targets are being achieved — as well as inclusion of advocates, activists, and workers on the ground in efforts are more important than ever” (Barton, 4/22). An archived webcast of the event is available online (4/22).
