Budgets for the last 10 years are shown in the table:

The figures provided are not on a consistent basis and for some years also include expenditure on contraceptive education. Prior to 1996–97 figures are based on health education of AIDS/HIV and sexual health plus some contraceptive education, and include a proportion of the health education authority's (as was) overhead costs.
In addition, funding has been allocated to the NHS annually to carry out HIV prevention activities at local level, including local awareness campaigns. In 2000–01 £55 million was provided for this work.
This year, further funding of £47.5 million was announced to implement the national sexual health and HIV strategy. This includes a commitment to a national safer sex awareness campaign which we aim to launch this autumn.
