Project objective

Supporting the development and financial sustainability of HIV programs at the expense of public funds in EECA countries

Relevance of the project

The role of the state in ensuring the sustainability of services is still primarily concerned with treatment programs and funding for HIV diagnostics and ARVs, as well as supporting the functioning of health care facilities providing medical care to PLHIV. Underestimating the importance of prevention programs further complicates the treatment component, increasing the influx of new patients, and ignoring care and support, in turn, reduces the effectiveness of treatment.

Project results

  • country coordination mechanisms have been established through which representatives of the CSOs take a proactive part in the development and implementation of the state HIV policy;
  • The regulatory framework has been amended to ensure sustainable and comprehensive regulation of the process of providing HIV services at the expense of the country’s budgets;
  • The possibility of a gradual increase in funding from the country budgets for HIV services using social contact mechanisms that are most relevant for each specific project country was ensured;
  • 2 information web portals were developed – SCO Social Contracting and These resources reflect the progress of the transition to public funding of HIV services and sustainability in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and help donors monitor the targeted use of NGO funds.
