Since 2010, development assistance for health (DAH) for malaria has been declining for the 35 countries actively pursuing malaria elimination (from US$ 176 million in 2010 to US$ 62 million in 2013). The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is the largest external financier for malaria providing 96% of the total external funding for malaria in 2013, with vector control interventions being the highest cost driver in all regions. Government expenditure on malaria, while increasing, has not kept pace with diminishing DAH or rising national GDP rates, leading to a potential gap in service delivery needed to attain elimination.
