February Issue Of Health Policy And Planning Focuses On Global Health Aid Allocation

Health Policy and Planning: Beyond Gross National Income: Innovative methods for global health aid allocation
In an editorial explaining this special issue, Jesse B. Bump, executive director of the Takemi Program in International Health and lecturer in the Department of Global Health and Population at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, writes, “The consequences of aid allocation decisions are enormous, and are felt most directly by the six billion people living in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). … The articles presented here represent a shared conviction that public discussion is an essential element in the legitimacy of these [aid allocation] processes and that scholarly examination can contribute new ideas to make them more equitable, more efficient, and more able to meet the needs of LMICs and their citizens” (2/5).
