Indonesia - 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.
DoD provides critical support to members of the Indonesian Defense Forces, their families, and civilians living near military facilities. With FY 2009 funds, DoD will expand and provide support to VCT activities, building on training provided with FY 2007 and FY 2008 funding. DoD will procure much needed HIV/AIDS rapid test kits to support testing and surveillance activities. Distribution of supplies will be targeted to facilities designated by the Indonesian Defense Forces as high prevalence areas. Test kits will be those approved for use by the MoH so that they may be used both for military personnel and civilians accessing military health facilities. In addition, funds will support technical assistance and travel as required.
DoD support for care and treatment will focus on capacity development through a workshop related to care and treatment.
DoD will also support laboratory capacity and expanding coverage of quality lab support services to PLWHA through the Indonesian Defense Forces (IDF). DoD will continue collaboration to improve and support laboratory capacity within military laboratory facilities outside the capitol. In addition, critical HIV disposable supplies, including reagents will be procured. With FY 2009 funds, DoD will also support a workshop to train military laboratory technicians from throughout the country, thus increasing the number of military medical facilities that will have trained laboratory staff. Additionally, USG and implementing partner staff are collaborating with government agencies, academic institutions, and research hospitals to develop appropriate external quality control systems for laboratory diagnosis of HIV and STIs. FY 2009 funds will also support technical assistance as required. Funding will also be used to enhance the in-country monitoring and evaluation skills of the IDF and provide a level of quality assurance for all program activities.
FY 2009 funds will also be used to initiate the process of developing a Partnership Framework. Specifically, the USG will contribute to implementation of a Papua Integrated Bio-Behavioral Surveillance survey which will support the development of the National Strategic Action Plan for 2010-2015. Funds will also be used for technical assistance and for national consultations leading to the identification of priorities for the Partnership Framework.
