Indonesia – 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.
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) provides critical support to strengthen the Indonesian Defense Force’s medical infrastructure in its efforts to fight the HIV epidemic. Medical services provided by the military reach not only the military, but also their families and civilians living near military facilities. With FY 2010 funds, DoD will continue to assist the Indonesia Defense Forces in implementing community-based activities among soldiers, their sexual partners, and surrounding communities to promote safer sexual behaviors. Key prevention strategies include peer education and interpersonal communication sessions, and the promotion of correct and consistent condom use. Increasing focus will be placed on reaching those at higher risk, such as those being deployed to a high prevalence area or STI patients. Information, education and communication materials will be updated to reflect best practices. DoD will also expand and provide support to VCT activities. Support for laboratory strengthening will focus on the procurement of reagents and other critical supplies as well as on training of laboratory technicians. Treatment support will focus on coordinating, planning and executing treatment, care and support workshops for military medical officers and other medical staff that work within the military community. 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, FY10 funds will support TA and travel as required.
Funding will support additional prevention interventions. The PEPFAR Indonesia team has recognized a need to fund condom social marketing and operations research to improve effectiveness of current prevention efforts and plans to support the management of provincial and district AIDS Commissions through small grants to civil society organizations.
