Ukraine – 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 PEPFAR program in Ukraine is committed to working in partnership with the Government of Ukraine (GOU) on a tactical, targeted response to Ukraine’s HIV/AIDS epidemic. Activities conducted during FY 2010 directly contribute to the goals, principles, and objectives outlined in a five-year USG – GOU Partnership , signed in February 2011.
Ukraine’s national HIV/AIDS response proposes to contain the rapidly increasing epidemic and reduce levels of HIV/AIDS morbidity and mortality through providing universal prevention, care and treatment services for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Key programs target coverage for MARPs including IDUs, CSW, MSM, and prisoners. Opiate MAT is key to halting the spread of HIV among IDUs, and in treatment, the GOU plans to scale up coverage for Ukrainians nationwide with uninterrupted and equitable access to high quality treatment.
PEPFAR technical support to enhance strategic information will enable the GOU to demonstrate measurable impact in reducing HIV transmission among MARPs and their sexual partners and in articulating the impact of medication assisted treatment programs. PEPFAR support to the GOU will also catalyze reforms that foster greater decentralization of high quality HIV/AIDS services. In addition, PEPFAR assistance will build stronger, more strategic Ukrainian professionals and institutions, a critical foundation for the long term sustainability of the National AIDS Program response. PEPFAR support overall, while directly addressing fundamental issues in HIV/AIDS, has the potential to influence broader change and achieve results that impact the Ukrainian health care system as a whole.
With FY 2010 resources, PEPFAR will continue to support robust programs to develop public sector and NGO institutional leadership and capacity to plan, manage and monitor the national AIDS Program, to deliver HIV/AIDS services, and to engage and coordinate on key issues in HIV/AIDS. PEPFAR investments will support the strengthening of national, regional and local coordination councils and HIV/AIDS monitoring and evaluation centers. Additionally, PEPFAR will support work with the National HIV/TB/IDU Training Center and the Ukrainian AIDS Center to improve clinical mentoring and support training needs for further expansion of treatment and integrated HIV care. PEPFAR will also continue to support programs providing comprehensive prevention services for IDUs, including medication assisted treatment. In addition, as CDC joins the PEPFAR team in Ukraine, funding will support new activities initiated by CDC addressing blood safety; TB/HIV; human capacity development related to HIV treatment, lab services, surveillance, and monitoring and evaluation; and strengthening lab and SI capacity.
