Report, Policy Brief Examine Malaria Elimination Financing

The UCSF Global Health Group and Cambridge Economic Policy Associates has released a new report and policy brief, titled “Financing for Malaria Elimination.” The report examines global and domestic resource allocation trends to malaria-eliminating countries and makes recommendations for new and additional funding sources. The report finds that the Global Fund is the largest financier of malaria-eliminating countries — only seven percent of its total malaria portfolio has been allocated to the 34 malaria-eliminating countries, and this proportion is falling (1/23).
