AIDS response is fully funded and efficiently implemented based on reliable strategic information

Fast-tracking and sustaining national AIDS responses requires sufficient and stable funding. Considering broader trends in development assistance and the transition of many countries from low- to middle-income status, analyses indicate that increasing domestic financing of HIV activities will be essential to long-term sustainability of national responses.

However, the funding gap for HIV responses is widening. At the end of 2019, US$ 18.6 billion was available for the AIDS response in low- and middle-income countries, almost US$ 1.3 billion less than in 2017. This amounted to about 70% of the 2020 target set by the UN General Assembly. While some countries have made significant efforts to boost domestic HIV financing, most are either unable or unwilling to allocate funding at the levels required to meet their needs. Thus, the Joint Programme continues to provide technical assistance to such countries as they define a sustainable path, maximizing sustainable funding opportunities and minimizing service disruptions of potentially complex transitions.
