Flat Funding for Global HIV/AIDS From Donor Nations in 2009
Funding by donor nations for global HIV/AIDS efforts was
flat in 2009 as a result of the global economic crisis, according to a study
from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) and the Joint United Nations Programme
on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). According to a KFF/UNAIDS statement, the Group of Eight
nations, the European Commission and other donor governments gave $7.6 billion
in 2009 compared with $7.7 billion in 2008. The
United States remains the largest donor nation to HIV/AIDS, accounting for 58
percent of 2009 disbursements.
