Devex highlights policy paper on global public goods for health co-authored by SEEK
Tuesday, November 27th, 2018
Devex has published a blog post on a policy paper co-authored by SEEK Development examining the potential support for global public goods (GPGs) from four organizations that provide the most development assistance for health: Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (Gavi); the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund); the World Bank, including the Global Financing Facility; and the World Health Organization (WHO), including the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
The paper finds that these organizations are well-placed to deliver support for GPGs, given that bilateral funding is increasingly tied to foreign policy agendas and a critical funding gap remains. Further, all four multilaterals want to step up their investments in GPGs and have signaled a desire to intensify their cooperation in three areas.
