The need for earlier detection of HIV-AIDS in Spain is among the priorities of a E4.8m ($4.8m) package of regional subsidies to be approved last week by the government. This latest round of funding, allocated under Spain's national AIDS programme, will see each of the regions receive between around E100,000 and up to E790,000 and E760,000, in the cases of Catalonia and Madrid, respectively. Funding needs have been assessed according to criteria based on the total number of diagnosed cases of HIV per region and the total population.
