The UK continues to play its part in tackling HIV and is proud to be the second largest funder of HIV prevention, treatment and care. Our support to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, UNAIDS, Unitaid and civil society organisations have helped save millions of lives. Globally 20 million people are now on life saving treatment and new HIV infections among children have dramatically declined.

DFID has no immediate plans to undertake a separate review or impact assessment of the UK’s global response to HIV.

The UK is guided by our 2013 review to integrate HIV within broader development and health systems strengthening work. We continue to pursue this approach.

Annual reviews of all DFID’s programmes are publicly available on the DFID Development Tracker.
