*WHO donors in 2014 (US, Gates Foundation, UK, GAVI and Canada): Setting
the agenda for global public health?*

In preparation for the 68th World Health Assembly, to be convened in Geneva
from 18 May 2015 to 26 May 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO)
prepared a document (A68/INF./1, 1 May 2015), entitled "Annex to the
Financial Report for the year ended 31 December 2014, Voluntary
contributions by fund and by contributor
<http://apps.who.int/gb/ebwha/pdf_files/WHA68/A68_INF1-en.pdf>). According
to WHO's Financial Report for 2014
<http://apps.who.int/gb/ebwha/pdf_files/WHA68/A68_38-en.pdf>, voluntary
contributions ($2.002 billion USD) constituted around 80% of WHO's program
budget while core assessments ($492 million USD) constituted around 19.7%
of WHO"s program budget in 2014.

The WHO document on voluntary contributions (A68/INF./1) disaggregates all
voluntary contributions to WHO by individual donor including Member States
and private donors noting that,

The WHO document on voluntary contributions (A68/INF./1) disaggregates all
voluntary contributions to WHO by individual donor including Member States
and private donors noting that,

Voluntary contributions -- core includes two types of revenue: funds
received to support the Programme budget as a whole, considered fully or
highly flexible; and funds that are earmarked for purposes within the
Programme budget, considered designated, or medium flexible. Fully flexible
funds and highly flexible funds, earmarked only at the level of the
strategic objective, are recorded in the Core Voluntary Contributions
Account. Designated funds, earmarked at the level of Organization wide
expected result, disease, or programme, are not as tightly specified for
detailed activity or expenditure line reporting as voluntary contributions
-- specified, yet are still earmarked rather than highly flexible so are
categorized as voluntary contributions -- core.
