Donor Funding For AIDS Response In Low-, Middle-Income Countries Plateaued, Report Says

“Global financing to fight AIDS has remained essentially flat since the 2008 financial crisis, according to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation and [UNAIDS],” the New York Times reports. In 2012, donors gave nearly $7.9 billion to low- and middle-income countries, about the same amount provided over the past four years following a period of spending growth from 2002 to 2008, the report said, according to the newspaper. The U.S. is the largest donor, providing nearly 64 percent of disbursements, and “Britain gives 10 percent, France five percent, Germany four percent and Japan three percent,” the newspaper writes. “The report was released as world leaders met at the United Nations to review progress on fighting poverty and disease,” according to the New York Times (McNeil, 9/23).
