Opening Remarks by Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General, on Innovative Financing Perspectives


Most developing countries grew at impressive rates during the first five years of this Century, managing to pull millions of people out of poverty. But now their perspectives are bleak: by the end of the year, the number of poor people can increase by more than 100 million. In the last seven years, a range of new financing mechanisms have been launched. The time has come to take stock of this wealth of experiences and to look in more detail at their impact on the global aid architecture and on countries’ strategies, priorities and systems.

    Sierra Leone

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
