Funding and Resources

In 2011, an estimated US$16.8 billion was spent on HIV/AIDS worldwide, however from 2009 global funding has flattened leading to a funding gap. This has serious implications for the future of the fight against HIV/AIDS. This collection of articles looks at a number of issues surrounding funding and access to HIV/AIDS resources, including the implications of funds running out, the impact of the global economic crisis, the role of communities, volunteers and religious organizations in providing care and resources, barriers to access to treatment, and management of scale-up of treatment.
