The United States is proud to support Ukraine’s leadership in the global HIV/AIDS response. PEPFAR provides direct service delivery and technical assistance in Ukraine to maximize the quality, coverage, and impact of the national HIV/AIDS response, particularly among key and vulnerable populations.


Working together with the Government of Ukraine, the private sector, civil society, and other development partners, PEPFAR is supporting efforts to strengthen national capacity and improve legal and regulatory frameworks to implement and evaluate HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs at all levels. Specific priorities include the following:

  • Improving the quality of HIV/AIDS service delivery, particularly for key and vulnerable populations, and expanding the provision of HIV prevention, testing, and counseling services to military personnel and their families
  • Improving the integration of HIV and tuberculosis services through linkages between services, surveillance, and laboratory function
  • Increasing the capacity of Ukrainian institutions to deliver HIV/AIDS programs through investments in laboratory systems strengthening, human resource capacity building, health information systems, and supply chain management
  • Strengthening the capacity of non-governmental organizations in financial management, resource allocation, and HIV/AIDS-related policy development
