Non–core (£ millions)
*WHO operates on a biennium financing cycle. Figures above are based on WHO biennium years (16-17 and 18-19).
Contributions are split into two separate years in response to this PQ. For example, UK total core contribution to the WHO biennium of 2016 - end 2017 was approx. £57.07m but has been divided in two (£28.54m) to show our approximate contribution for 2016 and 2017.
UK core contribution also includes UK assessed contributions in years 16/17, 17/18 and 18/19.Assessed contributions are contributions that must be paid by Member states to retain membership of WHO and participation in its governance. Contributions are assessed each biennium based on each member state’s relative wealth and GDP. These contributions constitute, by their nature, core funding.
The UK non-core contribution is comprised of a number of programmes across DFID, Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) including Public Health England (PHE). Focus areas include support to Polio Eradication amongst other health areas.
