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.
