Report Makes Recommendations For Improving Allocation Of Scarce Health Funding

In this episode of the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) “Global Prosperity Wonkcast,” Lawrence MacDonald, vice president for communications and policy outreach at the CGD, interviews Amanda Glassman, a research fellow and director of CGD’s global health program, about her recent report, Priority Setting in Health: Building Institutions for Smarter Public Spending, which “draws on the expertise of a CGD working group to offer recommendations for improving the allocation of scarce health funding, despite political and bureaucratic constraints.” “This report is really about saving more lives for the money,” Glassman explains, adding, “In a context of limited resources you have to set priorities,” according to the accompanying blog post (6/11).
