Uzbekistan received an extra $16.2 million for fighting the HIV epidemic
According to the GAC, the Uzbekistan HIV program initially submitted a reprogramming request to the TRP in Window 2 in July 2014, and the TRP recommended that it be re-submitted due to the lack of sufficient data on the epidemiological situation, the activities being proposed, and how the activities would be carried out. The Uzbekistan country coordinating mechanism requested and was granted a one-year costed extension until the end of 2015 in order to provide essential services during the transition to the allocation-based funding model. During this period, the Secretariat provided assistance to build the capacity of the proposed PR, improve data for key populations, and address risks related to procurement and supply chain management.
In addition, UNAIDS provided TA to the CCM and the PR, the Republican AIDS Centre, to help them address the TRP comments and develop a well-focused concept note. The revised concept note was submitted in Window 8 in November 2015 and was considered by the TRP to be strategically focused and technically sound.
The objectives of the HIV program are as follows:
- to deliver evidence-based, integrated and regionally prioritized HIV prevention and treatment services to key populations groups at risk of HIV and living with HIV;
- to support the development of a national health infrastructure that can provide a sustained, relevant and optimal HIV response; and
- to strengthen community systems and support civil society to ensure an HIV response that is based on needs, driven by human rights and public health, and is sustainable – and has a particular focus on key populations.

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
