I think this doc: http://assets.opencrs.com/rpts/RL33771_20061226.pdf (table 1) probably gives you exactly what you need in the way of citable source.

 

For the record, the following updates what I said to Rob Farley:

 

“The Bush Administration showed real leadership on global HIV/AIDS.  U.S. funding grew exponentially during the eight Bush years.  But global funding is still far short of anything close to global need.  The Obama Administration has committed to continuing the upward trend, but funding by other governments has been flat or on the decline since 2008.”

 

Best,
