Title: Monitoring Financial Flows 2007: Behind the global numbers
Themes: Data on R&D for health investments
Authors: Burke, Mary Anne; de Francisco, Andrés; Matlin, Stephen A.
Keywords: countries, developing countries, financial, financial flows, flows, global funding trends, investments in health, low- and middle-income, monitoring, research and development (R&D), research for health
Year: 2008 Pages: 58
Abstract:
This 2007 collection of studies looks behind the global totals, analysing R&D for health expenditures in Argentina, China, Mexico and the United States. It also looks at investments in the research of cancer and 20 historically high-burden infectious diseases. For many low- and middle-income countries affected by the double burden of both noncommunicable and communicable diseases, matching investments with research priorities is of paramount importance.

Title: Monitoring Financial Flows for Health Research 2008: Prioritizing research for health equity
Themes: Data on R&D for health investments
Authors: Burke, Mary Anne; Matlin, Stephen A.
Keywords: developing countries, equity, financial flows, health, health research, investments, low- and middle-income countries, monitoring, research and development (R&D)
Year: 2008 Pages: 122
Abstract:
Data on investments in research and development (R&D) for health provide an indicator of current research priorities, trends, overlaps and gaps. As efforts to address the health needs of poor populations are evolving, it is vital to regularly track these investments to make sure they are used better: in more efficient, effective and equitable ways.

The Global Forum for Health Research is the only organization that regularly tracks and reports on the world's R&D investments for health. In this 2008 edition, it provides new estimates of the investments in R&D for health globally and by sectors of performance and sources of funds.

Over the course of several decades the world has accumulated a substantial array of targets, commitments and aspirations relating to resources for development, health, research and health research. The Global Forum begins a regular review of these measures and global progress towards their implementation - a "Report Card" on global efforts relevant to R&D for health.

Year: 2006 Pages: 95
Abstract:
The Global Forum for Health Research is the only organization that regularly tracks and reports on the world's R&D investments for health.

This 2005 collection of studies looks behind the global totals, analysing R&D for health expenditures in Brazil and by public-private partnerships. It also looks at investments in the research of malaria, and HIV vaccines and microbicides. It further highlights the importance of building robust, sustainable systems of data collection to guide evidence-informed, efficient and effective investments in research to improve health equity.

Title: Monitoring Financial Flows for Health Research 2004
Themes: Data on R&D for health investments
Authors: Burke, Mary Anne; de Francisco, Andrés; Matlin, Stephen A.
Keywords: evidence, expenditures, financial, financial flows, flows, health, indicators, monitoring, research, research and development (R&D), resources, spending, track
Year: 2004 Pages: 105
Abstract:
Monitoring Financial Flows for Health Research 2004 presents an estimate of global spending on health R&D for 2001 but also exposes major gaps in the availability of good quality data from all sectors, disease-specific information and the measure of complex determinants such as poverty, inequity and gender.
The report sets out to see if growth in funding levels is continuing; whether the share of spending from public, private and not-for-profit sources has changed; whether low-and middle-income countries (LMIC) contributions have increased; how well health problems affecting LMIC and poor populations are being addressed; and the extent to which global health inequities have been reduced.

Title: Mainstreaming Gender at Forum 6
Themes: Evidence on neglected research priorities
Voices from stakeholders
Authors: Doyal, Lesley
Keywords: biological, equality, equity, Forum, Forum 6, Forum 7, gender, health, methodologies, research, social
Year: 2003 Pages: 59
Abstract:
To ensure better science and to promote gender equity, this briefing document for Forum 7 offers a summary of the main ideas presented in the gender sessions at Forum 6. These are based on the original documents provided by the presenters, to which suggestions for further reading have been added to follow up the ideas in the session. Though the presentations cover a wide variety of topics, they are held together by a number of key themes:
  • the importance of taking both biological sex and social gender into account in planning and undertaking health research;
  • the value of both quantitative and qualitative methodologies depending on the subject of study;
  • the importance of pursuing greater equality between women and men as both study participants and researchers.
