This is an average of the three domain scores below.

YEAR 2017

HIV & AIDS

The U.S. Government received an 86.8 B for HIV and AIDS, which reflects some negative impact from the Global Gag Rule, and low transparency in some agencies across policy and funding data. However, in spite of these negative actions, funding for HIV and AIDS-related government work remained higher than in other domains.

Department of State

 

The State Department received a 90.8 (A-) for HIV and AIDS because newly-published PEPFAR policy documents moderately promoted the HIV and AIDS response, and the State Department spent HIV and AIDS money in a way that was responsive to global need.
