China - FY 2009 Approved Funding by Program Area, Agency and Funding Source
*Only appropriations from the GHCS (State) fund account are notified by the Global AIDS Coordinator.
The following narrative describes activities supported by the GHCS-State fund account, notified by the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator.
With limited PEPFAR investments in China, PEPFAR programming has made important influences in strengthening targeted intervention areas. Funds to support laboratory capacity have had significant impact on the quality of China's national HIV testing network. Through the training of personnel and support for quality assurance reviews, 98% of the 2,927 laboratories receiving quality assurance assistance are now qualified. In FY 2009, PEPFAR will focus its laboratory support on developing a more optimal HIV rapid testing algorithm and implementing standardized record keeping at HIV testing sites.
The PEPFAR program in China will also continue to build models for scale up and replication by the Government of China, with a focus on development of a comprehensive prevention program, including a comprehensive prevention model for positives. In addition, PEPFAR supports technical and organizational capacity building of local community-based and non-governmental organizations, and advocacy and policy activities.
The PEPFAR China program strengthens linkages within the existing infrastructure to provide care, support, and treatment for AIDS patients in the People's Republic of China, with particular emphasis upon the rural epidemic and injection drug user populations. The USG also supports the provision of a minimum of package services for the most-at-risk populations.
Technical assistance is also provided for improvement of the provincial AIDS surveillance network with case-finding capacity.
