Spending on maternal health and childhood care has observed the greater growth than spending on HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria since the year 2010, marking a reversal in spending trends from the period of 2000 to 2010.
Researchers from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington collected budget statements, annual reports, and project-level records from agencies that disbursed development assistance for health between the years of 1990 and 2015. Then, they tracked where the money came from and to whom it was offered in case to dig deeper into how development assistance for health gets spent, Joseph Dieleman, PhD, assistant professor at IHME, told Pharmacy Times.
The study authors categorized the funds into nine primary groups: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, maternal health, newborn and child health, other infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, Ebola, and sector-wide approaches to health care network strengthening.
HIV/AIDS still made up the majority of development assistance for health. Nearly 30 percent of the total funds spent in the year 2015 went to HIV/AIDS, while 17.9 percent and 9.8 percent of it was spent on child health and maternal health, respectively.
Funds for HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis saw the most growth between the years of 2000 and 2009, but since 2010, assistance for maternal health and child health has climbed further. Meanwhile, assistance for HIV/AIDS and most of the other health focuses has remained stable or decreased.
