This is an average of the three domain scores below.
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.
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.
USAID received a 95.4 (A) for HIV and AIDS because although no new HIV and AIDS-related policy was publicly published, policies that scored highly previously (like the Commodity Fund) remain in effect, and USAID is spending HIV and AIDS money in a way that is highly responsive to need.
The Department of Health and Human Services received a 69.4 (D+) for HIV and AIDS because it has very low transparency of policy and funding data.
The Department of Defense received a 69.4 (D+) for HIV and AIDS because it has very low transparency of policy and funding data.
Congress received an 88.6 B+ for HIV and AIDS because although no significant new legislation on HIV and AIDS was passed or amended, Congress appropriated high levels of funding for the HIV and AIDS response and has relatively high transparency in these funding data.
The White House received a 90.5 (A-) for HIV and AIDS because in spite of the negative impact of the Global Gag Rule on HIV and AIDS response globally, the White House recommended a high level of funding for HIV and AIDS in the FY18 budget.
