Updated Kaiser Family Foundation Analysis Examines Donor Funding For Health In LMICs Between 2002-2013
Kaiser Family Foundation: Donor Funding for Health in Low- & Middle-Income Countries, 2002-2013
This updated analysis “presents trends in donor funding for health in low- and middle-income countries between 2002 and 2013. Funding during the period increased more than five-fold, rising from $4.4 billion to $22.8 billion, an increase even after adjusting for inflation and exchange rates. In 2013, donor funding for health increased by $2.7 billion compared to 2012, the largest percentage increase (13.5 percent) since the early part of the previous decade when increases were largely spurred on by the creation of several new funding initiatives and mechanisms such as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)…” (11/24).
