What Countries Need. Investment needed for 2010 Targets
This UNAIDS report estimates that an investment of US$ 25 billion will be required for the global AIDS response in 2010 for low- and middle-income countries-US$ 11.3 billion more than is available today.
The investment needs is based on the country-defined targets to reach universal access to HIV prevention, treatment care and support by 2010. The new report anticipates that nearly one third of this investment will come from domestic sources, with investments from multilateral and bilateral sources needed for the remaining US$ 17 billion.
The report highlights that, of the total investments required, approximately one third is for activities addressing behavioural change, social drivers of the epidemic, social mitigation and other services that are managed outside of the health sector through multisectoral programmes.
