Financing the Response to HIV in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: International Assistance from Donor Governments in 2015

Executive Summary
  1. This analysis counts donor government contributions to multilateral organizations as part of donor government disbursements (in addition to their bilateral disbursements to countries).  But donor contributions to multilateral organizations are not necessarily disbursed to countries in the same year.  A separate analysis by UNAIDS (UNAIDS: PREVENTION GAP REPORT, Geneva, 2016.), which assesses funding disbursed to countries (including multilateral disbursements), finds that such funding fell for the second year in a row.  This is due to the fact that in 2014, the Global Fund showed a one-time decrease in disbursements to countries, attributable to the roll out of a new funding model and in 2015, funding fell due to decreases in bilateral disbursements by donor governments.
