  • The table presents the total value of non-research funding (constant 2013 US$ millions) mentioning PNH provided by each donor over the period 2003–2013, by whether the funding exclusively benefitted PNH or also benefitted other population groups. Donors are ranked from highest to lowest total disbursements. Of the 54 donors in the Countdown database, 13 did not provide any non-research funding mentioning PNH in 2003–2013 period and so do not appear in this table: Estonia, Kuwait, Slovenia, African Development Bank, African Development Fund, Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development, Arab Fund for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA), Global Environment Facility, United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), United Nations Peacebuilding Fund, International Monetary Fund (Concessional Trust Funds) and the World Food Programme. Donors appearing in the table with a total disbursement showing as ‘$0.0 million’ disbursed <$50 000, which was rounded down. There is no double-counting of bilateral and multilateral ODA and private grants, so the columns sum to 100%.
