Kaiser Family Foundation, UNAIDS Release Annual Funding Analysis on Global AIDS Response
September 23, 2013
"As world leaders prepare to meet to review progress towards the Millennium Development Goals, a report from the Kaiser Family Foundation and [UNAIDS] evaluates international efforts to finance the response to the AIDS epidemic," a joint press release from the organizations states. "The annual funding analysis finds donor governments disbursed $7.86 billion toward the AIDS response in low-and middle-income countries in 2012, essentially unchanged from the $7.63 billion level in 2011 after adjusting for inflation," the press release says, noting, "Overall, donor government funding for HIV has stayed at about the same level since 2008 -- a plateau that followed a period of dramatic growth that saw donor nation support increase more than six-fold between 2002 and 2008." The report, titled "Financing the Response to AIDS in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: International Assistance from Donor Governments in 2012," "produced as a partnership between the Kaiser Family Foundation and UNAIDS, provides the latest data available on donor funding based on data provided by governments," the press release adds (9/23).
