Central Asia Regional – 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.
Due to concerns about rising rates of HIV in Central Asia, PEPFAR has supported a significant increase in funding for the region starting in FY 2009. To date, the epidemic remains primarily concentrated in MARPs, particularly IDUs, and overall HIV prevalence remains relatively low. Increased funding, strategically focused on prevention among MARPs, could potentially have a significant impact on the course of the epidemic in the region. Thus the USG PEPFAR program will focus on developing comprehensive prevention programs for IDUs, along with outreach, behavior change communication, drug demand reduction, and promotion of an enabling environment for IDU interventions. The PEPFAR program will also focus on prevention activities among other MARPs, including CSWs, MSM, and prisoners.
Funding will support direct implementation of prevention services for MARPS as well as the provision of technical assistance to improve the quality and efficiency of MARPs programming. In addition, funding will support injection safety, laboratory strengthening, and strategic information. Finally, funding supports staff salaries and the cost of doing business as well as several baseline assessments that help guide further program planning.
