Donor assistance for health-related activities in developing countries has grown rapidly in the last several years. Unfortunately, the levels of aid still fall far short of what is needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Additionally, shifting policy priorities and fluctuations in aid funding create ongoing challenges for donor agencies and aid recipients as they try to project and plan for global health needs. To help address these issues, policymakers and the private sector have developed a number of new, innovative financing tools to generate health aid more efficiently and effectively.

On October 22, Brookings will host a discussion of key issues in innovative financing for global health from the donors' perspective with a distinguished panel of international government officials. Panelists include Caroline Kayonga, Rwanda; Owen Barder, United Kingdom; Carlo Monticelli, Italy; Jean-Michel Severino, France; and, Ruud Treffers, The Netherlands. Brookings's David de Ferranti will introduce and moderate the discussion. After the program, panelists will take audience questions.
