President Obama’s Financial (FY) 2017 federal spending plan request, launched on February 9, 2016, consists of an estimated $34.0 billion for integrated domestic and global HIV efforts.1 Domestic HIV is moneyed at $27.5 billion and international at $6.6 billion in the request.2 The FY 2016 demand represents a 3.1% boost ($ 1.0 billion) over the FY 2016 enacted level, which totaled $33.0 billion. Detailed data for FY 2011-FY 2017 are supplied in Tables 1-2.

Federal funding for HIV has increased significantly over the course of the epidemic, consisting of by $5.7 billion (or 20%) when comparing the FY17 demand, which still needs Congressional approval, to the FY 2011 enacted funding level. This development has been driven mostly by increased spending on necessary domestic care and treatment programs, as more individuals are dealing with HIV in the United States and brand-new HIV infections stay at consistent levels. Federal funding for HIV, however, represents just a little fraction (lt; 1%) of the total federal budget of the United States.
