Research outputs were identified and analysed, then multiplied by the
estimated cost per paper. The method, developed originally for malaria
research, gave a more realistic estimate of global research expenditures
than previous attempts based on summation of the research budgets of
individual funders. Overall support for the different disease areas varied
greatly; cardiovascular and mental health research attracts far more
funding than malaria and dengue. In relation to the estimated disease
burden in 2001, the highest ratio was for diabetes and lowest for
tuberculosis, lower respiratory infections and malaria. These are much
lower than the ratios for many common non-communicable diseases. Overall,
the US National Institutes of Health and its individual component
institutes were the highest spenders, but in some areas the big
pharmaceutical companies spent more.
