Country Index

Every year 9 million people are diagnosed with tuberculosis. Every day more than 13,400 people are infected with AIDS. And every 30 seconds malaria kills a child. About a third of all deaths, 18 million a year, are poverty-related. Access to essential medicines for these diseases varies widely around the world. The Global Health Impact Country Index measures key drugs’ impact on these global health problems in each country. For additional information, please see About the Index and Methodology.
