HIV Prevention Research & Development Investments, 2000–2015: Investment priorities to fund innovation in a challenging global health landscape

This annual accounting of funding for biomedical HIV prevention research tracks trends and identifies gaps in investment. In 2015, reported funding for HIV prevention R&D decreased from US$ 1.25 billion in 2014 to US$1.20 billion. However, overall funding has remained essentially flat for over a decade. While investments towards research for preventive vaccines and female condoms increased from 2014 levels, investments towards microbicides, PrEP, TasP, VMMC and PMTCT declined.
