Project Summary

The overall aim of UNDP’s HIV/AIDS work in Sudan was focused on reducing HIV transmission and HIV mortality. The UNDP Global Fund programme, which started in 2009 has a two-fold strategy. Firstly to increase the availability of HIV/AIDs facilities nationwide; and secondly to target high risk and vulnerable population groups. The expansion of the national HIV/AIDS response has included an increase in confidential counselling and testing facilities; free distribution of condoms and social marketing; ensuring that blood transfusions in hospitals are from non-remunerated voluntary donors; and that people living with HIV and Aids receive care and support. UNDP has managed Global Fund grants for malaria since 2009 and represented a scaling up of activities. The main objectives of the project are to increase the percentage of malaria patients receiving prompt and effective treatment and to reach 85% coverage by long lasting insecticide treated bed nets, provide first line of treatment free of charge; expand home based management; improve clinical and laboratory diagnosis; and strengthen the Malaria Early Warning System (MEWS). The UNDP’s TB project aims to scale up and DOTs (Directly Observed Treatment, Short-Course), including in war-affected and post conflict regions. It also seeks to raise awareness amongst communities and in political circles. This includes raising awareness of TB prevention, treatment, efficacy and adherence.
