PSI and Devex are hosting a conference this afternoon that takes a look at recent trends in global health funding. The conference is pegged to the release of a special issue of PSI’s Impact Magazine for which I am a contributor.
I strongly encourage you to check out the conference, which has a great lineup. Livestream is here from 130 EST to 530 EST today. In the meantime, these infographics from the Global Giving Report tell a fascinating story about how governments fund global health.
