Kaiser Family Foundation Analysis Examines Global Funding For Malaria Control, Elimination, R&D

Kaiser Family Foundation: Global Financing for Malaria: Trends & Future Status
A new Kaiser Family Foundation report “provides an analysis of malaria funding trends for control and elimination and R&D activities over time compared to the estimated need presented in the GMAP [(Global Malaria Action Plan)]. It also looks ahead to assess projected funding availability.” The analysis finds that funding for global malaria control and elimination activities has risen from US$871 million in 2005 to US$2.6 billion in 2013. However, total funding is significantly below US$5.1 billion, the goal set by the GMAP, which is a framework endorsed by world leaders in 2008 to reach global malaria reduction targets (Kates/Wexler, 12/8).
