Spending on health and HIV/AIDS: domestic health spending and development assistance in 188 countries, 1995–2015
Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network
Comparable estimates of health spending are crucial for the assessment of health systems and to optimally deploy health resources. The methods used to track health spending continue to evolve, but little is known about the distribution of spending across diseases. We developed improved estimates of health spending by source, including development assistance for health, and, for the first time, estimated HIV/AIDS spending on prevention and treatment and by source of funding, for 188 countries.
