The HIV treatment program in South Sudan suffered a significant setback in 2011 when the national HIV program failed to secure resources to continue programs that were previously funded through GFATM Round 4 grant, which expired in November 2011. As a result, patients who need ART since Nov 31, 2012 are unable to ART. In addition, sites that were previously supported through GFATM to provide HIV testing have not been able to do so because of lack of funds to procure testing kits. The government of South Sudan (GOSS) approved $12 million in January 2012 to fund the HIV activities that were previously funded through GFATM Round 4. Unfortunately, because of an unexpected disruption in government revenues from oil (accounts for 98% of government income) due to the lack of a reliable route of exporting oil, GOSS have been unable to allocate the $12 million.
