This paper investigates the impact of international financial institutions (IFIs) on public health in developing countries. The paper asserts that this brief yet intense study has concluded that presently there is a lack of empirical research to document the precise effects of the IFIs on healthcare development in poorer developing countries, and that this is due to a lack of sound statistics as well as a lack of transparency in developing countries relating to their financial provision in for the development of health care, both of which lead to the inability to fully disseminate the impacts of the IFIs to health care development in these countries. This paper contains an illustrative figure.

Financial Globalization and Effects on Developing Countries
Barriers to Dissemination
Barriers to Positive Outcomes in Health Care Funding

From the Paper:

"Because of the breakdown in sound and harmonized statistics between developed and developing countries and due to the lack of transparency in some developing countries, there is a urgent need for these factors to be corrected in the processes of these country's reporting and accounting procedures so that factually correct dissemination can be conducted on the effects of IFIs on health care development in poorer developing countries of the world."
