Development Assistance for Health in LAC by Source

This interactive data visualization shows the trend of the international development assistance for health in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Key findings:

The composition of development assistance for health reflects a characteristic pattern of a middle-income Region to the extent that the multilateral development banks participation has played an important role with regard to bilateral aid.

After experiencing contraction in the year of the international financial crisis, development banks disbursements, particularly those by the World Bank, have been showing signs of recovery and expansion, bringing the total banking portfolio to more than 1,0 billion dollars in 2011.

This contrasts with the progressive decline of bilateral aid since 2008, the year in which the aid reached its peak in the decade, resulting in a reduction of 6.2% in 2010.
