The World Bank conducts a substantial amount of policy and systems research each year. In the ""FY14 World Bank Budget"" published on August 9, 2013, on page 16, it lists a spending of 715.6 million US dollar for the development of knowledge products for clients, the public good or internal use. We found no disaggregated numbers for such spending in the area of health. Therefore, the G-FINDER amount was included, which does not include expenditures on health policy and systems research. "
