This study seeks to investigate the impact of dwindling donor funding on HIV and AIDS projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. The study surveyed literature on the
effects of diminishing donor funding on people living with HIV and AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa. Factors associated with reduced donor funding identified in this study were the global financial crisis, governance issues, the shift in research interests, and the politics of medical research and patenting. These factors were discussed as perennial problems that tend to discourage the donor community from extending further humanitarian assistance to the continent. The study suggested ways of indigenising the production of medicines, and financing HIV and AIDS projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.
