India And International Aid Priorities

In this Center for Global Development Global Health Policy blog post, Amanda Glassman, director of Global Health Policy and research fellow at CGD, and Denizhan Duran, a CGD research assistant, examine the question of whether European and other aid agencies should continue to give aid to India, a country that “now plans to give $11.3 billion in the next five to seven years” through its own aid agency. “India might send a man to space in 2016, which will cost billions of dollars. But unless the global community provides support and peer pressure, the country will not eliminate vaccine preventable diseases by then, which would cost much less, save millions of lives and yield benefits for all,” they write (8/15).
