New study: Funding for key populations affected by HIV and AIDS “way off track”
Funding for key populations affected by HIV and AIDS “way off track”...
This is one of the main conclusions from the first ever study into global funding for key populations, released today at the HIV2020 conference by Aidsfonds through the Bridging the Gaps and PITCH partnerships.
Fast-Track or Off Track: how insufficient funding for key populations jeopardises ending AIDS by 2030
Funding for key populations affected by HIV and AIDS “way off track” with only 2% of money for HIV programmes targeting them.
This is especially alarming as key populations and their partners account for more than half of all the new HIV infections globally.
This study was commissioned by Aidsfonds through the Bridging the Gaps and PITCH partnerships.
The research looks into the funding towards HIV programming for gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, transgender people, sex workers and people who inject drugs in low and middle income countries between 2016-2018, and compares this against funding for the overall HIV response.
There is a staggering gap of 80% between the budget required for key populations and the amount made available
