Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues

CGD Maps Global Health Funding Agencies

“Through our Value for Money working group, we’ve spent much of the past year immersed in the world of global health funding agencies,” Victoria Fan, a research fellow at the Center for Global Development (CGD), and Rachel Silverman, a research assistant for the global health team at CGD, write in the center’s blog. “With so many new agencies, particularly in the last quarter century, understanding the intricacies of the global health family can be daunting, even for the most devoted observers,” they continue, adding, “For our own reference (and yours), we thought it would be useful to compile a ‘cheat sheet’ on global health funding agencies.” The background brief (.pdf) “compile[s] key ‘stats’ for large global health players,” they note and summarize the brief’s tables. “We hope that this resource provides a useful overview for novices and veterans alike who are trying to make sense of the complicated global health landscape and architecture,” they conclude (5/16).
