No 94279, Health, Nutrition and Population (HNP) Knowledge Briefs from The World Bank

Abstract: Peru reduced its HIV/AIDS burden by 43 percent from 2000 to 2010 due to the introduction of free antiretroviral drug therapy in 2004, and the successful execution of the 2007-2011 HIV/AIDS Strategy and budgeting for results since 2011. The national HIV program received significant external support from bilateral and international organizations until 2010. The program?s share of domestic public funding has since increased substantially. Since 2011, the Ministry of Finance has worked to improve allocative efficiency of HIV/AIDS public funding for high-risk groups, using budgeting for results and transferring resources directly to the Regions. The HIV/AIDS prevalence in 2010 was estimated at 0.4 percent, below the Latin American and the Caribbean regional prevalence of 0.5 percent.
