Financing Global Health 2010: Development Assistance and Country Spending in Economic Uncertainty shows the continued rise in development assistance for health globally and provides a comprehensive picture of the total amount of health funding flowing from aid agencies, governments, and private donors to developing countries.
This detailed report includes data on mortality trends for more than 180 countries over two decades. Researchers at IHME, working in collaboration with researchers at the University of Queensland, gathered vital registration data, censuses, surveys, and other sources to create datasets that were more than twice as large as those available for previous studies on maternal and child mortality.
This is the first of an annual publication providing valid and consistent time series data for tracking global health resources and offering in-depth analyses in the following three areas: development assistance for health, government health expenditure, and private health expenditure. This first report focuses on development assistance for health.
