Donor Score

The table below gives a "donor score" to each country by year. By selecting a year on the drop down, the table refreshes to display the "donor score" for the selected year. The "donor score," developed by Aidspan, shows the contribution as a percentage of Gross National Income for those countries ranked high or up middle-income countries by the World Bank. Those countries classified as either high or upper-middle income but without GNI data for a particular year, or who did not contribute that year (but did contribute other years) are also left blank.

Aidspan donor scores are calibrated as follows:

  • Donor score "A": % of GNI is equal to or greater than 0.010%

  • Donor score "B": %  starts from 0.007% to less than 0.010%

  • Donor score "C": % starts from 0.004% to less than 0.007%

  • Donor score "D": % starts from 0.001% to less than 0.004%

  • Donor score "E": % is less than 0.001%

As with any scorekeeping mechanism, there are a few caveats. Critically, the score only reflects a country's contributions to the Global Fund: not to the global fight against the three diseases. Bilateral or multilateral partnerships with individual countries constitute a significant -- and untabulated in this instance -- portion of the external money that is committed to research, commodities and programming at the country level. The scoring intervals were derived from an examination of how contributions were plotted along a bell curve. It was observed that there was a considerable margin between those countries contributing at the top end - up to 0.01% of their GNI - and those in the middle. This translated into a natural break from which stepped intervals between scores followed.

A glossary of terms used in the tables is provided here.
