On June 27 2001 at the United Nations, all countries committed themselves to a global funding target of 10 billion dollars per year [1]. The table below lists the countries who should be the main achievers of this target, and most responsible for the current funding crisis.

Notes

[1] Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS, General Assembly of the United Nations, June 2001

[2] It should be noted that the UK government claims to have increased its bilateral aids funding fivefold - from $100 million to $480 million - in the mysteriously short space of 3 mere years, and that this claim remains unsupported by any independent source. In the past 8 months, several British NGOs have put this UK government claim in question (see «UK AIDS aid : An analysis of DFID HIV/AIDS expenditure», ActionAid, November 2003).
