UNAIDS has released a new report on the estimated financial resources required for the AIDS response. The report, puts forward three different approaches to financing the AIDS response including:
Scaling-up at current rates. This approach would require between US$ 14 to US$ 18 billion and would provide treatment for 8 million people by 2015.
Universal Access by 2010. This approach envisages significant increases in available resources and an urgent and dramatic scale-up of coverage in all countries. The approach would provide treatment for 14 million people by 2010 and would require between US$ 32 to US$51 billion. In 2015 the approach would require between US$ 45 and US$63 billion.
Phased scale-up to 2015. This approach assumes different rates of scale-up for each country based on current service coverage and capacity, with the achievement of different programmatic targets at different times and the achievement of universal access by all countries by 2015. The approach would require between US$ 41 and US$ 58 billion in 2015.
The estimates provided in the report, developed for 132 low- and middle-income countries, were based on the type of epidemic and nationally established targets using the latest available data.
