The report of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), released simultaneously in several cities around the world on Wednesday (18), indicates that domestic investments against the epidemic are higher than international. The document Together to End AIDS emphasizes that developing countries have invested 8.6 billion dollars for the fight against AIDS, an increase of 11% compared to 2010. However, foreign investment remained stable at around 8.2 million.

According to the report, 81 countries increased their domestic resources in more than 50% between 2006 and 2011.

The countries that make up the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), for example, increased its investments against the disease in more than 120% between 2006 and 2011. The BRICS fund has, on average, over 75% of the shares against the epidemic. Brazil and Russia use its own resources in 100% of the national strategies.

In sub-Saharan Africa, not including South Africa, investments increased 97% over the past five years. South Africa has invested more than 80% of its national income and investments in the country quadrupled between 2006 and 2011.

Financing of the international community were stable between 2008 and 2011 at around 8.2 billion dollars

On the other hand, funding from the international community were stable between 2008 and 2011 at around 8.2 billion dollars. The financial support of the United States now accounts for almost 48% of all assistance worldwide pandemic.

This is an era of global solidarity and mutual responsibility, said the executive director of UNAIDS, Michael Sidibé. The countries most affected by AIDS are taking the reins and showing leadership in the response to HIV. However, it is not enough that international assistance is stable. She has to increase if we still want to achieve our 2015 targets.

To extend your responsibility and the commitment to strengthen mutual support against the pandemic, the African Union launched on the eve of the 19th International AIDS Conference in Washington, an international script against the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria. This script provides more diverse forms of financing, sustainable and balanced against these diseases by 2015, and represents a new engagement the continent against the pandemic.

"It's clear that now is not the time to diminish our efforts against AIDS. Rather, we enjoy the successes already achieved against this disease and think about a future without new infections of HIV, said the coordinator of the Global AIDS Action States United, Eric Goosby. "We (USA) will continue to do our part in the fight against AIDS and investing wisely so that every dollar is well used, he added.

While domestic investment for AIDS are increasing, there is still a major shortfall in overall support for the disease. By 2015, it is estimated that there is a failure of the annual $ 7 billion. In the High Level Meeting of the United Nations held in 2011 the country adopted the Political Declaration on HIV / AIDS, where he pledged to increase their investments between 22 and 24 billion dollars by 2015.

A collective effort of all countries is needed so that the investments continue to rise and this goal is achieved.
