Mapping Multilateral Development Banks’ Reproductive Health and HIV/AIDS Spending

This report tests the Multilateral Development Bank (MDB) commitments to promote reproductive health, prevent HIV, and treat AIDS. It analyzes the quantity and quality of the MDB funding for these sectors between 2003-2006 and highlights how the MDB and the International Monetary Fund’s policies undermine achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) reproductive health and HIV/AIDS targets. The report concludes that donor policies include gender equality goals but these commitments are not reflected in budget allocations.
