Reorienting health aid to meet post-2015 global health challenges: a case study of Sweden as a donor

Oxford Review of Economic Policy
Gavin Yamey, Jesper Sundewall, Helen Saxenian, Robert Hecht, Keely Jordan, Marco Schäferhoff, Christina Schrade, Cécile Deleye, Milan Thomas, Nathan Blanchet, Lawrence Summers, and Dean Jamison This paper shows that Sweden spends less than a fifth of its health aid on global functions, similar to other donors. The authors discuss the likely health challenges of the SDG era and suggest that Sweden redirect its development assistance for health from “local functions” towards “global functions” – i.e., helping to provide global public goods, dealing with cross-border externalities, and providing global leadership and stewardship.
