Volume 490: debated on Monday 23 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much his Department has allocated for the next financial year to fund its commitments under the Government's AIDS strategy in 2009-10. (260210)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is committed to using its overseas network of posts to support ‘Achieving Universal Access’. Posts in are being encouraged to use their existing budgets to support effective national AIDS responses to halt and reverse the spread of HIV, in particular among vulnerable groups. It is therefore not possible to state how much the FCO will allocate to funding for the Government's AIDS strategy in 2009-10.
