- Before the COVID-19 pandemic, global spending on health was continuing
to rise, though at a slower rate in recent years
- External aid for health mainly funded infectious and parasitic disease
programmes in low and middle income countries, while domestic public
funds focused more on noncommunicable diseases
- A group of 32 lower income countries face severe health financing constraints, which slow their progress towards health security and universal health coverage
- Although precise forecasting is impossible, the combined health and economic shocks triggered by COVID-19 will have both direct and indirect consequences for health spending and progress towards universal health coverage
- The COVID-19 pandemic caught the world by surprise, but confirmed the need for greater and more secure public funding for health.
