The battle against HIV/AIDS has received more donor funding than most other diseases combined. Many tens of billions of dollars has been spent in the more than 30 years of the epidemic. The amount of funding has raised concerns among some that attention is being taken away from other killer diseases. Now, a new study says that’s not the case.
