Because the European Union does not have a GNI per say, but rather uses a compilation of its Member States’ GNIs, we have chosen to look at the share of health in EU ODA rather than how much of its GNI EU allocates to DAH.
This graph shows a slight decrease in the share of ODA allocated to health between 2015 (8.7%) and 2016 (8,2%), which is interesting to note knowing the fact that in terms of volume, DAH actually increased between 2015 and 2016.
This means that the increase in volume of DAH was not as ambitious as the increase of ODA and actually represents a decrease in terms of how much ODA is targeted towards health.
In 2016, the EU contributed to multilateral organizations for health up to 25% of total DAH, although the only contribution was towards the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
The EU used to report Gavi as a bilateral project in the CRS, which we consider as inaccurate. Moreover the 2015 contribution to Gavi was reported under a wrong channel and code, which makes the tracking of those outflows difficult.
