Other notes: The regional offices of the World Health Organization (WHO), such as PAHO, likely do fund health research. WHO headquarters funds about 100 million USD of health research per year (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20815938). However, no data have been reported for PAHO's health research spending. Therefore, we included PAHO's expenditures according to the G-FINDER study, the only other data source available. Please note that these expenditures as denoted by G-FINDER relate only to product development for neglected diseases and do not include, for example, health policy research.
