China – FY 2010 Approved Funding by Program Area, Agency and Funding Source*
*Only appropriations from the GHCS (State) fund account are notified by the Global AIDS Coordinator.
USG HIV assistance to China focuses primarily on providing TA and capacity-building to the Government of China (GOC), strengthening the GOC’s ability to provide oversight and manage its national HIV response in a sustainable manner. Although the GOC provides strong leadership and funding for the national HIV program, the quality of HIV interventions is frequently lacking and technical capacity is limited, especially at the provincial and local levels; USG helps to build this capacity. Thus, even with very limited resources, USG exerts a strong influence on the GOC’s HIV response at the national, provincial and local levels. TA focuses on best-practices guidance and developing implementation models for MARPs.
Primary prevention is a top priority for GOC and is at the core of USG TA. FY 2010 funding will target improvements in the quality of MARPs programming in the 15 provinces with the highest HIV burden, with more intensive efforts in Guangxi and Yunnan. Similarly, USG will support improvements in the quality of IDU interventions as they are scaled up by the GOC. FY 2010 funds will also support the GOC in improving the quality of the National 100% Condom Use Program and support the 61 city survey of MSM. Limited funding will be provided to assist the GOC to reduce mother-to-child transmission.
USG will continue to support the GOC and Global Fund to scale up the essential care package model to provide quality care and support services to PLWHA, including those on ART. FY 2010 funding will also support better implementation of the national TB/HIV program and promotion of PITC in TB clinics.
USG will provide TA to the national free ART program, including strengthening the linkages between VCT, prevention, care and treatment. USG will also provide TA to strengthen cooperation between PMTCT and pediatric HIV/AIDS programs and to improve the quality of care for HIV-exposed and infected children.
The USG will continue to work closely with the National AIDS Reference Laboratory to strengthen the national laboratory system, addressing issues such as accreditation, domestic proficiency testing, viral load testing, and drug resistance testing. FY 2010 funding will also support targeted surveillance and behavioral surveys and promote improved access and use of information collected in the national surveillance system; provision of TA at the national level to assist with an evaluation of the national HIV/AIDS program; and the development of the next national five-year action plan for HIV/AIDS. The USG will continue to improve human capacity at the national, provincial and county levels as well as build the capacity of local community-based organizations.
