Health Systems Strengthening for a Sustainable HIV/AIDS Response in Ukraine
Grant Amount: The anticipated total federal funding amount is $18,000,000.
The purpose of the ‘Health System Strengthening for a Sustainable HIV/AIDS Response in Ukraine’ project is to strengthen Ukraine’s health system to ensure effective and sustainable delivery of HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services to key populations.
The program's purpose will be achieved through the following major objectives:
Objective 1: Enhance national leadership and capacity for evidence-based and gender-sensitive HIV policy programming and implementation (40%); Objective 2: Improve and optimize resource allocation and financing for the national and selected regional HIV/AIDS programs targeting key populations (40%); Objective 3: Optimize and strengthen human resources for health (HRH) for the delivery and scale-up of gender-sensitive HIV/AIDS services targeting key populations (20%).
USAID seeks to implement a comprehensive set of interventions in these three areas, which are interrelated and complement each other, resulting in the following outcomes: significantly strengthened local institutional and operational capacity (at the center and in up to ten priority regions with highest HIV/AIDS burden) to improve and implement evidence-based and gender-sensitive HIV policies targeting key populations, to design and implement the new five year (2014-2018) national and regional AIDS programs, with optimized resource allocation, financing and strengthened HRH to deliver integrated gender-sensitive HIV/AIDS services to key populations while using the opportunities opened up by the GOU health reform efforts.
