UNAIDS, Kaiser Family Foundation Track Donor Government's Commitment to International AIDS Programs in 2008
July 17, 2009
A recent UNAIDS and Kaiser Family Foundation report tracks funding levels of the donor governments that collectively provide the bulk of international assistance for AIDS through bilateral programs and contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (7/09). The report reveals "overall commitments in AIDS funding from the developed world totalled $8.7 billion in 2008, up from $6.6 billion the previous year. Disbursements, which reflect actual resources made available in a given year and therefore provide a better measure of resource availability, rose even more rapidly, up 56 percent to reach $7.7 billion in 2008," according to a UNAIDS release (7/13).
