A new study finds that while the United States consistently has provided more funding for development assistance for health (DAH) than any other country, some high-income European nations have far surpassed the US’s assistance in per capita and other expenditure measurements.

The study, published in the December issue of Health Affairs journal, examines DAH trends in 23 high-income nations between 1990 and 2016, and analyzes each country’s contribution relative to its population, share of public sector spending, and national economy. Additionally, many countries, including the US, make contributions below agreed-upon international targets for development assistance.
