Donors to the Global Fund: Who Gives How Much? |

Publisher: Aidspan

The countries whose recent pledges to the Global Fund have been the largest in relation to their gross national income are Sweden, Norway, France, the United Kingdom and Canada, in that order.

To help with the analysis that led to this conclusion, Aidspan created a formula for a “Global Fund donor score.” The formula is based on a country’s average annual pledge to the Global Fund for 2011–2013 as a percentage of its 2011 gross national income. Aidspan then applied this formula to each of the 30 countries that have the largest economies and that are defined by the World Bank as being “high-income.” (The definition “high-income” is based on standard of living, not size of economy).
