Bilateral donors rank the highest in providing information for the matrix (43.3%), the next is INGO. The matrix is still lacking of programs and projects from UN which may underestimate the all funds for health sector.

By the budget scale, 10 largest DPs are: WB, ADB, AP, Austria, KfW, EC, GB, the Nertherlands, Embassy of Finland and USAID. The first three largest DPs have 50% of the total budget registered in 2010.
