IN A forthcoming article for The Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics, Devi Sridhar, a global health specialist at Oxford University, describes as a ”particularly serious problem” the ”loss of health workers from the public sector to better-funded NGOs offering better remuneration”.

The foundation responds: ”Much of our grant-making goes to large intermediary partners that in turn provide funding and support to those doing the work in the field, often to developing country institutions. We’re not able to provide a simple funding breakdown.”

The rise of the foundation has been part of a larger revival of interest in the West in the problems of poor countries. This phenomenon has encompassed increased government aid budgets, initiatives by the World Health Organisation and World Bank, celebrity-led events and countless private ventures.
