London, Apr 10 (ANI): Scientists of the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp have urged that there's a need of a social security fund on a global scale.

In a Viewpoint in the leading medical journal The Lancet, the boffins say such a 'Global Fund for Health' would make the use of international donor money a lot more transparent and efficient.

At the moment, 44 percent of international health aid money cannot be traced in the budgets of the receiving countries. This doesn't necessarily mean it has disappeared in somebody's pockets, but it is unclear when nor on what it has been spent. (ANI)
