Project Summary

2015 marked a decade of successful collaboration between UNDP, the government of Belarus and civil society organizations in the implementation of Global Fund TB and HIV grants. UNDP was nominated Principal Recipient in 2004 for the HIV Round 3 grant, and added the Round 6 TB grant in 2007. Important programmatic results have been achieved over the past 10 years. UNDP also worked with the government of Belarus to stimulate domestic investments in health. Government contribution toward the national TB and HIV programs has grown substantially over the past 10 years to where it is currently financing 100% of first-line anti-TB drugs, 70% of MDR-TB medicines, and 40% of antiretrovirals (ARV) as well as harm reduction services, OST and TB/HIV prevention programmes for key populations. Most recently, the government committed to funding food and transport subsidies for MDR-TB patients.  UNDP handed over the management of grants to the national Principal Recipient on the 1st January 2015. To ensure a successful transition and continued success of the grants between May and December 2015, parallel to the approval and negotiation process of the new grants, UNDP put in place a capacity development and transition plan including, mechanisms to monitor and qualify the transition as a success.
