Summary 

This 2014 update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) Database includes estimates for 1990-2014, 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.

To understand the framework used to track DAH, users of the DAH Database 1990-2014 should review IHME's Financing Global Health 2014 policy report and methods annex.

An updated version of the database with DAH estimates through 2015 is now available.
