Report Examines European Official Development Assistance

In a post on the Action for Global Health blog, Tim Roosen, coordinator of Action for Global Health, discusses a new report, launched Wednesday in conjunction with the Medical Mission Institute (MMI), examining official development assistance (ODA) from European countries. “Our findings show that many of Europe’s biggest economies are not living up to their commitments on ODA and that many are also not reaching the 0.1 percent of Gross National Income (GNI) target for global health, set by the WHO a decade ago,” the blog states. The report, titled “Results or Rhetoric: What you didn’t know about Europe’s aid for health,” “culminates in a number of recommendations to donors, the OECD and civil society,” according to the blog (11/14).
