Financing Global Health 2013: Transition in an Age of Austerity launched at the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), a public policy institution based in Washington, DC. IHME Director Dr. Christopher Murray discussed findings from a new health financing paper published in Health Affairs as well as IHME’s latest Financing Global Health report. Dr. Murray highlighted how some donors have scaled back their funding while others have been increasingly generous. Using data from the latest Global Burden of Disease study, he also compared current funding allocations to disease patterns around the world.
Following the presentation, Dr. Murray and Dr. Ariel Pablos-Mendez, Assistant Administrator for Global Health at USAID, took part in a roundtable discussion moderated by Dr. J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director of the Global Health Policy Center at CSIS. The roundtable focused on the policy implications of IHME’s report.
