In a post in his "Malaria Matters" blog, Bill Brieger, a professor in the health systems program of the department of international health at Johns Hopkins University, examines donor funding for global health and asks whether funding for malaria has hit a plateau. "For malaria we are likely to be plateauing at levels that are only half of what is needed annually to move countries into the pre-elimination phase," Brieger writes, citing an article published in Aidspan's Global Fund Observer last week, and details the findings of a donor funding report released this month by the Kaiser Family Foundation (1/30).
