Report Examines HIV/AIDS Funding Provided by G8, Donor Governments for Low-, Middle-Income Countries

June 6, 2007

"Financing the Response to AIDS in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: International Assistance From the G8, European Commission and Other Donor Governments, 2006," Kaiser Family Foundation and UNAIDS: The report examines funding for HIV/AIDS services in low- and middle-income countries provided by the Group of Eight industrialized nations and other donor governments. The report tracked funding levels of donor governments and found that in 2006, international HIV/AIDS commitments from the G8, European Commission and other donor governments reached $5.6 billion, its highest level but still short of the estimated need. The U.S. government provides the largest share of donor government funding for HIV/AIDS, accounting for nearly half, or 47%, of funding commitments made by these governments in 2006, followed by the Netherlands at 17% and the United Kingdom at 14%. However, when donor efforts are assessed based on national wealth, or AIDS funding disbursements per one million dollars of gross domestic product, three non-G8 members -- the Netherlands, Sweden and Ireland -- lead in funding. The U.S. falls in the middle and Japan and Italy are at the bottom (Kaiser Family Foundation/UNAIDS release, 6/5).
