With its modest resource base of US $ 120 million for the 1996-97 biennium, UNAIDS is not a funding agency. It is a small programme that aims to increase its impact and outreach through strategic alliances with its cosponsors and other partners. UNAIDS cosponsors fund their own HIV/AIDS country-level programmes and activities. A further US $ 20 million is being raised for joint UNAIDS/cosponsor activities at the global and regional levels. Funds are received from traditional donor countries, but also from developing countries (e.g. China and Thailand) and the private sector. UNAIDS aims to increase the resources available to national AIDS programmes by supporting fund-raising activities at the national level and providing training in resource mobilization to its national partners.
