"Federal government AIDS spending is estimated at $18.5 billion in FY2004: 63% is for treatment programs; research receives 16%; income support programs receive 9%; and, prevention programs receive 12%. The government-wide request level for FY2005 is $19.8 billion. AIDS programs within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) account for 77% of the total amount spent on HIV/AIDS by the federal government. Funding for HIV/AIDS research, prevention and treatment programs within the HHS discretionary budget has increased from $200,000 in FY1981 to an estimated $6.3 billion in FY2004; the Administration's request for FY2005 is $6.4 billion. Funding for HIV/AIDS treatment within HHS entitlement programs has increased from $10 million in FY1983 to an estimated $8 billion in FY2004. Entitlement spending depends on the number of HIV/AIDS cases that qualify; the estimate for FY2005 is $8.6 billion for HIV/AIDS treatment within HHS entitlement programs."
