Development Assistance for Health Database 1990-2015 File icon

This update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) Database includes estimates for 1990-2015, which are based on project databases, financial statements, annual reports, IRS 990s, and correspondence with agencies. The DAH Database enables comprehensive analysis of trends in international disbursements of grants and loans for health projects in developing countries from key agencies. The data are disaggregated by funding agency, country and geographic region, and health focus area. New in 2015 is a program area disaggregation within HIV/AIDS health focus areas.

To understand the framework used to track DAH, users of the DAH Database 1990-2015 should review IHME's Financing Global Health 2015 policy report and methods annex.

ETOPO5 5-Minute Gridded Elevation Data 1988

The ETOPO5 dataset comes from a digital database of land and sea floor elevation on a 5-minute latitude and longitude grid. The data were originally collected from various sources by Margo Edwards in 1988 while at Washington University, St. Louis, MO. A small area of Canada was re-gridded in 1990. Sources of the data include United States Naval Oceanographic Office, United States Defense Mapping Agency, Bureau of Mineral Resources, Australia, Department of Industrial and Scientific Research, New Zealand, and United States Navy Fleet Numerical Oceanographic Center.

The resolution of the data varies. Ocean floor, United States, Europe, Japan, and Australia data are gridded to a resolution of 5 minutes, while parts of Asia, South America, northern Canada, and Africa are gridded to 1 minute due to insufficient data.
