Germany is the second main European ODA donor after the United Kingdom. According to the DAC, ODA represented 0.42% of its GNI in 2014 and up to 0.52% in 2015 (respectively US $16.56 billion and $17.7 billion in volume). According to our methodology, Germany allocated €956 million and €1.008 billion to global health in 2014 and 2015. Those substantial amounts in volume only represented 0.03% of its GNI in 2014 and 2015, which means that Germany is far from complying with the recommendation of the WHO Commission on Macroeconomics and Health.
The ratio per GNI has been quite stable in the last few years with a peak in 2010 and 2011, even though the overall volumes have increased from €639 million in 2007 to €1,008 million in 2015.
