Publisher: Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

The world has made remarkable progress over the past two decades to address AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and increased investment can help ensure disease resurgence does not undo these gains. Stepped-up funding for the Global Fund and U.S. bilateral programs is our best defense against future disease resurgence.

The path forward is clear: to end AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, we must scale up prevention and treatment, strengthen surveillance systems and invest in innovation. Drawing on historical examples and empirical evidence about resurgence, this new report demonstrates why it is crucial for U.S. policymakers to invest in the Global Fund.

This article examines financing in the fight against malaria. After briefly describing malaria control plans in Africa since 2000, it offers a stylized model of the economics of malaria and shows how health aid can help escape the malaria trap.

This 10th edition of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s annual Financing Global Health report provides the most up-to-date estimates of development assistance for health, domestic spending on health, health spending on two key infectious diseases – malaria and HIV/AIDS – and future scenarios of health spending. Several transitions in global health financing inform this report: the influence of economic development on the composition of health spending; the emergence of other sources of development assistance funds and initiatives; and the increased availability of disease-specific funding data for the global health community. For funders and policymakers with sights on achieving 2030 global health goals, these estimates are of critical importance. They can be used for identifying funding gaps, evaluating the allocation of scarce resources, and comparing funding across time and countries.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has proven highly effective at fighting the world’s major killers. Strong governance and development institutions, however, are necessary for improving health long-term. While some suggest international aid can strengthen institutions, others worry “dead” aid undermines governance. The Fund is a unique aid institution with mechanisms designed to improve transparency and accountability. We constructed a unique dataset to explore whether Global Fund financing has a significant effect on governance and development.
