U.S. International HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Spending: FY2004-FY2007 [Updated December 28, 2006]   [open pdf - 112KB]

"On January 28, 2003, during his State of the Union Address, President George Bush proposed that the United States spend $15 billion over five years to combat HIV/AIDS through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The President proposed that most of the spending on PEPFAR programs be concentrated in 15 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Of the $15 billion, the Plan anticipated spending $10 billion on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria programs in the 15 Focus Countries, $4 billion on international HIV/AIDS research and bilateral HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria programs in more than 100 non- Focus Countries, and $1 billion on contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria (Global Fund). Between FY2004 and FY2008, PEPFAR aims to have supported care for 10 million people affected by HIV/AIDS, including children orphaned by AIDS; prevented 7 million new HIV infections; and supported efforts to provide anti-retroviral medication (ARV) to 2 million HIV-infected people. [...] The FY2007 Department of Defense (DoD) appropriations did not specify support for DoD's bilateral HIV/AIDS efforts. Congress did not enact the other outstanding appropriations measures that would have provided funds for global HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria activities in FY2007. Instead, it enacted P.L. 109-289 (Division B), which provides funding at the lessor of FY2006 enacted, FY2007 House-passed, or FY2007 Senate-passed levels until February 15, 2007. This report will review U.S. spending on the three diseases between FY2004 and FY2007, and will be updated to include further congressional actions in FY2007."
