HIV Funding by Governments Fell 10% From 2009 to 2010

Funding disbursements by donor governments for the global response to HIV/AIDS fell by $740 million—about 10 percent—between 2009 and 2010, according to a Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) statement. An annual funding analysis conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation and UNAIDS revealed that in 2010 seven governments out of the 15 surveyed reported reductions in disbursements, including the United States, Germany, Netherlands and Norway. However, the overall drop in funding was primarily attributed to the United States, the largest donor nation. The slowdown in disbursements was attributed to new requirements established by Congress for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Some of these delayed funds may be disbursed in later years.
