The United States is proud to support the Central Asia Region in its leadership in the global HIV/AIDS response. Working closely with national governments, civil society, and other development partners, PEPFAR provides targeted technical assistance and limited direct service support to maximize the quality, coverage, and impact of the national HIV/AIDS response in five countries – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

 

Throughout the region, PEPFAR is aligning investments to scale up interventions that are most effective in the areas and populations with the highest burden of HIV/AIDS to address drivers of the region’s concentrated epidemic – in line with PEPFAR 3.0 as well as the the UNAIDS Fast-Track strategy and 90-90-90 targets for 2020. Specific priorities include the following:

 

  • Increasing the coverage and quality of HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs – especially for key populations
  • Strengthening the capacity of national and community health systems

Data reflect information available on the PEPFAR Dashboards and PEPFAR.gov, which represents planned new bilateral funding initially approved in the PEPFAR Country Operational Plans/Regional Operational Plans (COPs/ROPs) each fiscal year. As additional funding may be approved and made available after the initial COPs/ROPs submission, or to PEPFAR-supported countries that are not required to submit an annual COP/ROP, data on the Dashboards may not represent the final PEPFAR programmatic funding level in countries each fiscal year.
