Kaiser Family Foundation/UNAIDS: Kaiser/UNAIDS Study Finds Slight Increase In Donor Government Funding for AIDS In 2014
In a press release, the Kaiser Family Foundation and UNAIDS discuss a new joint report showing “although there was a slight increase in funding to respond to HIV in low- and middle-income countries in 2014, seven of 14 donor governments actually decreased funding, two remained flat, and funding from five governments increased. … The U.S. government remained the largest donor government to HIV in the world but funding remained essentially flat, totaling US$5.6 billion in 2014, as it did in 2013. The next largest funder was the U.K., at US$1.1 billion. In addition to the U.K. increase, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, and Norway also increased total assistance for HIV in 2014, while Germany and the U.S. remained essentially flat. Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Ireland, Sweden, and the European Commission decreased assistance for HIV in 2014…” (7/14).
