Report Examines Philanthropic Aid For HIV/AIDS Initiatives In LMICs

“Philanthropic support for HIV/AIDS initiatives in low- and middle-income countries in 2012 totaled $500 million, or 5.4 percent of total international funding, a report from Funders Concerned About AIDS finds,” Philanthropy News Digest reports. “Produced with support from UNAIDS, the report [.pdf], ‘Global Philanthropic Support to Address HIV/AIDS in 2012,’ found that philanthropic funding to address HIV/AIDS was essentially flat — increasing less than one percent — on a year-over-year basis and has remained at roughly the same level since 2007,” the news service writes (12/12). This slight increase “is largely due to the addition of 40 funders, new to the report, based outside of the U.S. and Western & Central Europe,” according to the report summary (December 2013).
