Fighting AIDS

Fighting AIDS

More subsidies and commitment: combating the disease in Africa has become our number one priority in terms of international solidarity.

Annual budget devoted to this issue by the local authority

The subsidies granted to the fight against AIDS in Africa have increased each year since 2001, and are now the City's largest for international solidarity. In 2007, the allocated subsidies will total 2.3 million.

These substantial aids from Paris City Hall have brought about the implementation of around twenty programmes in around thirty sites or regions.
They also enable the contribution of other sponsors: total co-funding has reached 16 million in six years.

Backing for programs

Programs are selected with a view to covering all aspects of the fight against AIDS:

- Local prevention and support for regional prevention measures
- Medical treatment
- Psychosocial support
- Prevention of HIV transmission from mother to child
- Child protection against AIDS

These programmes are carried out by associations in the Paris region which already have long-standing experience in the fight against AIDS.
On a national or regional scale, these programmes are designed and implemented in cooperation with the States and in accordance with the guidelines defined by international institutions (UNAIDS, WHO, etc.)
They aim to ultimately foster an active role of local authorities.

The City of Paris co-funds the programmes with budgets ranging from 100,000 to 500,000 per year. Its contribution can reach 225,000 per year and per programme.
