East Asia and the Pacific

Regional Development Mission Area (Total GHCS-State: $240,000)

USAID ($120,000): In partnership with local government service providers, USAID will provide technical and funding support to local community-based MSM and groups of female sex workers in Laos for HIV prevention.

HHS/CDC ($120,000): CDC will provide technical support to the Laos MoH to strengthen HIV surveillance and data use, the quality of HIV-related laboratory testing, and the quality of HIV care and treatment clinical services.

Together, USAID and CDC are working to build the capacity of the Laos MoH and community groups to engage with Global Fund partners in HIV prevention programs for most-at-risk populations (MARPs). The use of this GHCS-State funding in Laos is providing the basis for valuable lessons of use throughout the region, as the behavioral target populations are the same. GHCS-State funds are playing a critical role in the USG's ability to leverage partner government and Global Fund responses in Laos and the region.
