Writing checks that bounce: World continues to backtrack on HIV treatment
Date:7/20/2010

in 2008 compared with 2007 by approximately 1.7 million (1%), and total funding has decreased by approximately 5 million (7%) since 2006.6

FIVE CURRENT MYTHS V. CURRENT REALITIES:

1. Myth: Too much money is being spent on AIDS
Reality: Funding for AIDS is billions of dollars short of what is needed:7

  • Needed in 2010: $25.1 billion
  • Invested in 2008: $13.7 billion
  • Funding gap for 2010: $11.4 billionassuming the world maintains its pre-economic crisis commitment to AIDS.

2. Myth: Money spent on AIDS is at the expense of other health needs or investment in health systems
Reality: The total amount of development assistance for health quadrupled from $5.6 billion in 1990 to $21.8 billion in 20078much of this catalyzed by the increased funding and commitments to HIV/AIDS.

Although the Global Fund and PEPFAR are among the largest global AIDS funders, they are also some of the biggest investors in health systems, with 35%9 and 32%10 of their respective funding devoted specifically to health systems strengthening.

3. Myth: Strengthening health systems alone will help address health problems including AIDS
Reality: Strong health systems alone do not guarantee equitable and universal health care. Past public health approaches failed to reach the most marginalizedwomen, MSM, sex workers, IDUs, the very poor and those living in rural areas. Health systems need both breadth and focus.

4. Myth: Prevention is more important than treatment
Reality: Activists never pit prevention and treatment against each otheron the ground they work together. Treatment can enable more effective prevention by reducing transmission and encouraging testing and prevention makes treatment affordable.

5. Myth: AIDS has been addressed unlike maternal health or other diseases
Reality: The AIDS crisis is not over. AIDS activists have been the most effective advocates for health in history. T
