Closing Global Health Funding Gap Requires Innovative, Private Financing, Increased Domestic Investments, Donor Aid

The Lancet Global Health: Getting serious about financing the end of epidemics
Chris Collins, president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, discusses the global health financing gap and efforts needed to close this gap, writing, “Policymakers and global health advocates should take this up with urgency and be willing to get out of their comfort zones. This will require learning about and working with innovative and private finance, and growing domestic investments by implementing countries. It will also require recognizing that donor aid has unique strengths, including the ability to catalyze other funding, and needs to be increased” (10/6).
