Disbursements to recipient countries,
per capita

The interactive graph shows a high variability of disbursements per capita to countries at a comparable level of development. For example, among least developed countries, in 2010, commitments per capita per year ranged between US$ 1.9 and US$ 39.9.

This interactive graph is based on data from the Creditor Reporting System (CRS) database maintained by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Statistics Department. The interactive graph covers 119 WHO Member States.

A disbursement is the release of funds to, or the purchase of goods or services for a recipient; by extension, the amount thus spent.

Disbursements per capita are presented in constant 2009 US$ to ensure comparability over years.

Disbursements reported are all country programmable (Country Programmable Aid) as opposed to other health Official Development Assistance (ODA), which may be disbursed at country level but has not been allocated unequivocally to any one specific country.
