Donor Government Funding for HIV in Low- and Middle-Income Countries in 2019
Some of these changes were slight and reflect either exchange rate fluctuations or the pace of disbursements versus policy or programmatic decisions by donors.
Part of the decline in multilateral funding from France between 2018 and 2019 was due to a decrease in the estimated HIV-adjusted share of UNITAID funding.
Donor government disbursements are a subset of overall international assistance for HIV in low-and-middle-income countries, which also includes funding provided by other multilateral institutions, UN agencies, and foundations.
As noted earlier, some of these changes were slight and reflect either exchange rate fluctuations or the pace of disbursements versus policy or programmatic decisions by donors.
In 2019, the value of the U.S. dollar rose against most global currencies. As a result, some of the year-to-year fluctuations in donor disbursements reflect exchange rate fluctuations.
In 2019, UNITAID reported that a decreased share of its resources was provided for HIV activities compared to 2018 (45% compared to 58%). The decline in multilateral funding from France in 2019 was largely due to this decrease.
UNAIDS estimates that US$18.6 billion was available for HIV from all sources in 2019, expressed in 2016 USD. For purposes of this analysis, this estimate was converted to 2019 USD, or $19.8 billion.
