Funding policies for HIV and AIDS : time for change.
Funding for HIV and AIDS in England has been allocated to regions by a formula based on the number of cases of AIDS and HIV infection and on population size.
Regions have distributed the resources directly to hospitals and community services.
A survey of staff and managers in North East Thames region showed that funding arrangements have led to unsatisfactory development of services for HIV and AMS.
Firstly, because hospitals are funded according to current numbers of patients services are highly developed at the central London hospitals and underdeveloped in outer districts.
Secondly, specialised community care teams have been established rather than integrating care for HIV and AIDS into generic primary care.
