Donor Funding For Health In Low- & Middle-Income Countries 2002–2010
Health Financing report by Kaiser Family Foundation
[from author] While donor funding for health in low and middle-income countries rose significantly in the last decade, the era of rapid growth has come to an end. Health increased as a share of Official Development Assistance (ODA) during the early part of the past decade. However, this share has remained essentially flat in recent years, with year-to-year increases in donor funding for health peaking in 2007, and declining each year since.
Trends between 2002 and 2010 provide an indication of donor priorities and important shifts. While funding for all health sub-sectors grew[including HRH], funding for HIV/AIDS, malaria, and TB increased at faster rates, and in 2010, HIV/AIDS accounted for more than 40% of total health funding. The report is part of a multi-year effort of the Kaiser Family Foundation to analyze and track trends in donor funding for health.
