The ‘Continuing Scale Up of the Response to HIV with Particular Focus on Most At Risk Populations and Strengthening System and Capacity for Universal Access to HIV Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Care’ project works to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS into the general population and reduce its impact on most-at risk populations throughout all regions of Uzbekistan. It also provides targeted support by strengthening national capacities for universal access to HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care in Uzbekistan.
The Government of Uzbekistan is making efforts to stop and reverse the HIV epidemic in the country by mobilising both national and international resources. In view of the escalating epidemic, Uzbekistan applied for Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Grants and the country has been awarded two GF grants, namely HIV Round 3 Rolling Continuation Channel and Round 10 grants. In accordance with GF Policy, the grants have been consolidated into a Single Stream of Funding.
The current HIV project in Uzbekistan is designed to ensure universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. The consolidated project has been implemented by UNDP as the Principal Recipient, in close cooperation with governmental, nongovernmental and international organisations, and UN partners working in the area of HIV/AIDS response.
The project has undertaken efforts aimed to ensure the sustainability of interventions initiated within its framework.
