The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog highlights two reports in a series of reports examining the geographic presence of global health donors by the Kaiser Family Foundation, titled "Mapping the Donor Landscape in Global Health." In one post, the blog describes the first report in the series, which analyzes donor funding for HIV/AIDS. "Global HIV/AIDS attracts the greatest share of official development assistance of any global health program area," the blog notes, adding, "The report outlines that 37 different donors, including 26 bilateral donors and 11 multilateral donors, provided an average of $7.6 billion in global HIV/AIDS assistance to 143 recipient countries between 2009 and 2011" (Aziz, 9/5). In a second post, the blog highlights another report in the series that discusses donor assistance for tuberculosis (TB). The blog writes that according to the report, "the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and direct U.S. financing constitute 81 percent of global TB assistance" (Lubinski, 9/5).
