AIDS Funding

What is the Federal budget for AIDS programs? Return to top

The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has declared AIDS the number one public health priority of the Public Health Service (PHS). The Federal budget for FY00 is approximately $7.7 billion dollars.

Of the total FY00 Federal appropriations for HIV and AIDS, approximately $695.3 million was appropriated to the CDC for HIV prevention activities. A large part of CDC's prevention appropriation is distributed in the forms of grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements to organizations, state and local health departments, and academic institutions that provide prevention programs or activities to persons practicing high-risk behaviors and to the general population.

About $2 billion will go to DHHS for research, and will cover not only study of the virus and its impact on the immune system, but also the cost of clinical trials for AIDS drugs and vaccines.

Below is the Fiscal Year 2001 Proposed Appropriations Levels for Federal AIDS Programs, compiled by AIDS Action.
