KFF, UNAIDS Release Annual Donor Government Funding For HIV Report

Kaiser Family Foundation: Donor Government Funding for HIV in Low- and Middle-Income Countries in 2018
The new report, produced as a partnership between the Kaiser Family Foundation and UNAIDS, provides the latest data available on donor funding disbursements based on data provided by governments. The analysis finds donor governments spent US$8 billion for HIV in 2018, similar to a decade ago. Since 2010, donor governments, other than the United States, significantly reduced their funding for HIV, which fell by more than US$1 billion in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, and with the competing aid demands of a global refugee crisis and other humanitarian challenges. Most of the decline was in bilateral support. These donors increased their support for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria over this period, but not by enough to offset a large drop in bilateral support. When factoring how the Global Fund divides its resources among the three diseases, and reduced funding for UNITAID, multilateral support for HIV has also fallen since 2010 (Kates/Wexler/Lief, 7/16).
