Research by the IHME estimated malaria spending for 106 countries which were malaria-endemic over 2000-2016 or became malaria-free after 2000. The estimates cover malaria spending disaggregated by source into three domestic financing source categories (government, out-of-pocket, and prepaid private) and development assistance for health (DAH). Domestic malaria spending estimates were produced from a diverse set of data, including National Malaria Control Programs, the WHO’s World Malaria Reports (WMRs), country spending estimates reported to the Global Fund, and National Health Accounts (NHAs). Development assistance for malaria data were drawn from IHME's 2018 Development Assistance for Health Database. This database is also informed by a diverse set of sources, including program reports, budget data, national estimates, and NHAs. Estimates are reported in constant 2018 United States dollars.
