via Slideshare

The global development community has made great strides in developing effective and affordable treatment for HIV/AIDS. Over 18 million people, or about half of the 36 million individuals living with HIV worldwide, are now accessing antiretroviral therapy. Sustained antiretroviral therapy and treatment enables people living with HIV to live longer and healthier lives.

Achieving that milestone would not have been possible without significant pledges from international donors. According to UNAIDS estimates, $26.2 billion is needed by 2020 to meet global HIV targets and end AIDS as a global public health threat by 2030.
