Key Implementers of U.S. Global Health Efforts

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

To carry out global health efforts around the world, the U.S. government (USG) funds a wide range of implementing entities, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), multilateral/international organizations, private sector organizations, educational institutions, and other governments. This brief provides an analysis of the implementing organizations that received U.S. global health funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in FY 2015. It helps to provide a more complete picture of key implementers of U.S. government global health efforts, building on earlier KFF analyses that focused on NGOs only.1 It finds that:

  • In FY 2015, 773 organizations received $6.65 billion to implement global health programs in 90 countries around the world.
  • Funded activities spanned all 9 major program areas of the U.S. global health portfolio, including HIV, tuberculosis, and family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH).
