§ Baroness Williams of Crosby
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How much was spent on reproductive health by the Department for International Development in each of the years 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999; and within that total how much was spent on protection against and treatment of HIV/AIDS. [HL3449]
§ Baroness Amos
In many cases it is not practical to distinguish between the sexual and the reproductive health/family planning elements of our programmes. There is also often no clear distinction between assisting with work in HIV/AIDS and in other sexual health issues. However, the following is an approximate breakdown of DFID's bilateral contributions to reproductive health/family planning and HIV/AIDS in 1996–1999. This does not include its significant contributions to multilateral agencies involved in tackling HIV/AIDS.
