Financial resources

Despite such progress, major challenges remain—especially the lack of funding.

UNAIDS estimates $7 billion to $10 billion per year spending on HIV/AIDS is required in low- and middle-income countries. This requires an increase of 5 per cent to 10 per cent in the world’s official development assistance (ODA).

UNFPA spending on HIV prevention has nearly doubled, to approximately $46 million in 2001. This figure includes country, regional and global-level efforts.

A solid base of funding, strong partnerships and a deep understanding of how best to take effective action will help UNFPA respond as the epidemic changes over time.

In the challenging years ahead, one concept will remain constant: HIV prevention is relevant to all countries regardless of the stage of the epidemic and is most effective when implemented early.
