Project Summary

UNDP became principal recipient of a Global Fund grant for HIV in 2012 aimed at expanding the response to the spread of AIDS in Central Asia. The agreement supports national HIV initiatives by improving monitoring and evaluation as well as providing treatment, care, and prevention services, with a focus on those most at risk. UNDP Uzbekistan previously provided administrative and management support to the Republican AIDS Centre for the HIV component of the Global Fund programme there. In August 2010, UNDP was asked to become Principal Recipient for the Global Fund’s HIV programmes in Uzbekistan.

Strengthening National Supply Chain Management

Previously in Uzbekistan most drugs used in antiretroviral treatment were procured with Global Fund support.  In order to address sustainability of supply the government of Uzbekistan allocated 2 million USD for ARV procurement. In September 2013 the Ministry of Health and UNDP signed an agreement which envisages UNDP support to procure ARV with government allocated funding. This ensures best value for money, supply of quality assured drugs and further contributes to the strengthening of national supply chain management.
