Time trends in Japan’s ODA for health

Update : August 26, 2019Data Visualization

This graph illustrates the time trends of Japan’s ODA for Health by “Sources”, “Channels”, “Regions”, and “Health Focus Areas” for the past five years from 2012 to 2016. The amounts contributed within each of the categories are calculated in Japanese yen and US dollars as absolute values and their percentage. The graph may show either the “Percentage of Contribution” or the “Financial Contribution” with a click of a button at the bottom of the interactive screen. The graph display can switch between Japanese yen and US dollar by clicking on the “¥” or “$” signs at the lower right corner of the screen.

You may select each of the main categories, “Sources”, “Channels”, “Regions”, and “Health Focus Areas”, from the dropdown menu box on the right part of the interactive screen. Detailed subcategories may be selected or deselected to display the subcategories of your choice on the graph.

By pointing the cursor over a particular year on the graph, the total amount contributed within the particular year will appear. In addition, by pointing the cursor over the bar graph, the amount contributed within a particular subcategory and its percentage to the whole will appear.

Updates include

Estimated Japanese ODA contributions to the health sector through non-health specific multilateral agencies (development banks, etc.), which is now included in the total amount of the previous data. The estimation was calculated to account for ODA contributions for health that are not identifiable in non-earmarked contributions to non-health specialized multinational agencies.

Methodology for calculating imputed multilateral contributions

  • Step 1
    Based on reports from multilateral agencies to the OECD DAC, flows to the health sector of each organization are calculated as a percentage of total ODA disbursements (I health share of the agency’s total ODA)
  • Step 2
    Based on this report, shares of each agency's ODA disbursements in health to each region as well as each health focus area are calculated (II region-specific share of the agency’s health ODA, III health focus area-specific share of the agency’s health ODA)
  • Step 3
    Multiplying I, II, and III obtained for each multilateral agency by the total amount of Japan's contribution to the agency, we estimated flows of Japan’s contribution for health through the agency
  • (Example) The Ministry of Finance's multilateral contribution to health through the World Bank is estimated by multiplying the total amount of the Ministry's contribution to the World Bank by I. In addition, contributions to a particular region and health focus area is estimated as total ODA × I × II and total ODA × I × III, respectively.
