National Association of People Living With HIV/AIDS Welcomes Increased Spending on HIV/AIDS

November 4, 2002

The National Association of People Living With HIV/AIDS has welcomed the news that the South African government will increase spending on its HIV/AIDS policy by about R3.3 billion (US $333 million) over the next three years. Delivering his Medium Term Budget Policy Statement in Parliament, Finance Minister Trevor Manuel said the increased allocations included targeted funding on the national department's budget, increased conditional grant amounts, and increased provincial spending funded through equitable sharing. The minister said additional funds would target the prevention of HIV transmission from mother-to-child, post-exposure prophylaxis for rape victims, and further expansion of appropriate treatment regimens.
