Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network estimated tuberculosis spending for 134 low- and middle-income countries for 2000-2017. The estimates cover tuberculosis spending disaggregated by source into three domestic financing source categories (government, out-of-pocket, and prepaid private) and development assistance for health (DAH). Spending is also disaggregated by function, including care and treatment, prevention, and other spending. Domestic tuberculosis spending by source and function was estimated based on data from sources including the WHO Global Tuberculosis database, the Global Fund, WHO National Health Accounts and sub-accounts, WHO Global Health Expenditure database (GHED), National Tuberculosis Reports, and Ministry of Health Reports. Development assistance for tuberculosis data were drawn from IHME's 2019 Development Assistance for Health Database. Estimates are reported in constant 2019 United States dollars.
