In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has become the greatest threat to world health and could seriously regress the progress made in highly divergent fields.
Moreover, the crisis has only made existing health problems worse, highlighting even more sharply the need to advance in Sustainable Development Goal 3, related to health and well-being, and to achieve Universal Health Coverage.
Unfortunately, the present report demonstrates how only five out of the 29 countries from the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) have met the objective to allocate 0.7% of their Gross National Income (GNI) to Official Development Assistance.
In 2019, Spanish Aid represented 0.21% of the country’s GNI, insufficient for reaching the said 0.7%, while the importance placed on Cooperation continues to drop and stands at 2.39% of the total. Spain’s Humanitarian Aid is also at a bare minimum, despite a slight increase, reaching 62 million euros and representing 2.35% of the Aid total. In short, a long way from the 10% commitment.

Universal Health Coverage
and the percentage of this aid allocated to health by the Committee’s countries has dropped by 6.5% in relation to the previous year.
insufficient to reach the 0.7% commitment, some distance from the 0.30% average of DAC donor countries and from the 0.47% average of EU donor countries.
Spanish Official Development Assistance
a percentage which is way below the 12.91% average of DAC donors and a far cry from the 8% Spanish Cooperation allocated for the sector in 2010.
Health in Spanish Cooperation
despite a light increase positioning it at 62 million euros, which represents 2.35% of the ODA total, some distance from the 10% commitment and not enough to alleviate humanitarian needs.
