Funding for AIDS drops in low and middle income countries

HIV treatment

Funding by donor governments for the AIDS response in low- and middle-income countries fell in 2010.

That's according to a new study by the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS and the Kaiser Family Foundation.

In their annual funding analysis, $6.9 billion was disbursed for HIV prevention, treatment, care and support in 2010. That's 10% less than the year before.

Accounting for 54% of total disbursements, the United States, which is the largest donor, considerably reduced its donations.

Other governments surveyed were Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden.

At the UN High-Level Meeting on AIDS in June, countries had agreed to scale up investments for AIDS to between $22 billion and $24 billion by 2015.
