249810 Aid effectiveness In Global Health - Invited panel

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 12:30 PM

Elisabeth Sandor , Senior Coordinator for Health, OECD, Paris, France
In 2007, the Development Assistance Committee of the OECD (OECD DAC) selected health as a “tracer” sector to monitor progress and remaining challenging in the implementation of the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness. This decision stemmed from the analysis that aid to health had significantly increasing (Development assistance for health quadrupled between 1999 and 2010) and became more complex, with more actors, new sources for funding and new approaches to aid delivery. The final report of the international task team on health will be released by June 2011. Few weeks ahead of the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Korea (29 November-1 December 2011), the presentation at APHA will shed light on the main outcomes of this report: Does more effective aid lead to better results in health? If yes, what are the conditions for progress? What has been achieved through the International Health Partnership? How can countries make the best out of more diverse forms of aid (including from non-DAC donors, private sector, Innovative financing for development…)? How can we draw on the lessons learned including through Global Programmes to ensure better collective action and partnership in support of health and scale up towards the Health MDGs? What priority actions and recommendations could be made by politicians in Korea which can help in achieving more progress in the health sector as well as in other sectors and areas facing similar issues?
