Global Health Observatory (GHO) data

Donor disbursements, by income group

The interactive graph shows how donors allocate their Official Development Assistance (ODA) for health to countries of different income levels and how the distribution has changed over time. In 2010, donors’ disbursements for Least Developed Countries (LCDs) and low-income countries were 48.5% of all disbursements for health, against 38.9% in 2002

The interactive graph covers bilateral OECD/DAC Members. Commitments by OECD/DAC donors are presented according to income groups.

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.

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 record the actual international transfer of financial resources, or of goods or services valued at the cost to the donor. Disbursements are presented in constant 2009 US$ to ensure comparability over years.
