The Netherlands in Global Health: Data-driven insights in the policy and spending

Cordaid has developed an interactive tool tracking Dutch global health financing and policymaking.

Half of the world’s population still does not have access to basic quality healthcare. That is why mobilising finances from high-income countries, like the Netherlands, is crucial to addressing health inequities globally.

Cordaid has created an interactive tool that tracks global health financing and policymaking in the Netherlands. We transformed IATI data between 2018 and 2023 into interactive visuals to provide data-driven insights into the spending on assistance for health in low- and middle-income countries.

The tool is divided into three parts. The first one is dedicated to understanding global health architecture. The second delves into the general state of Dutch spending and policymaking related to global health. And finally, we dive into six thematic areas selected by global health advocates.

It also addresses critical challenges when it comes to global health advocacy. How do you track investments from high-income countries? What is the money put towards? And where? Are countries, like the Netherlands, contributing enough and in accordance with international standards?  

This tool will continuously adapt and evolve, not only according to new data available but also based on the needs and feedback of its users.
