The HIV Pandemic

Chris Simms

Oxford University Press

The international donor community has long held that governments' failure to confront the HIV pandemic and take clear steps aimed at its prevention and control, are key to understanding the severity of today's crisis. The evidence shows that donors themselves did not adequately prioritize and provide effective, timely leadership to tackle the pandemic. Donor aid and the way it was delivered were often donor-driven, short-term programmes, often lacking community participation, and they were evaluated in terms of inputs or disbursements. Donor initiatives may have actually reduced access to goods and services aimed at the prevention and treatment of HIV at the individual and community levels. Similarly, efforts by the international research community in dealing with issues like an HIV vaccine, a ‘social vaccine’ and inequalities in global research spending suggests the response to the pandemic was belated, underfunded and undermined by institutional constraints and the pursuit of Northern agendas over Southern needs.
