  • It is interesting to know that a great amount of funding for health comes from international donors especially Sub-Saharan Africa. I believe this gesture to promote development in developing countries have to some extent strengthened bi-lateral ties especially for these developing countries and the US. In addition to monitoring countries achieve the Abuja declaration, would be interesting to know what is being done for sustainable financing in developing countries and the Sub Sahara.

  • The list of top donors to sub-Saharan Africa is distorted by the fact that the US is also the largest single country donor to the Global Fund ($953 million in 2012), GAVI ($140 million in 2012), UNICEF ($98 million )the World Bank and other multi-laterals such as the African Development Bank ($2.6 Billion in 2012). Sub-Saharan Africa was the primary recipient of much of this funding, and much of that was health focused. In addition, the amount lion's share of foundation funding and individual contributions to charitable organizations working in sub-Saharan Africa comes from the US. The US should be recognized for its leadership in Global Development and as the largest source of funding for Africa.
