Surviving Global Fund Transition to Safeguard the HIV Response in Ukraine

As Ukraine transitions towards domestic funding and leadership of its HIV response, the voice and influence of key populations, communities and civil society is as vital as ever.

Not only through meaningful involvement in decision making at all levels, but also funding for their grassroots programmes.

They must be the conscience of the transition process. Community-led advocacy and monitoring of the availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of nationally-funded HIV services is key to success. PITCH partners have been at the heart of advocacy efforts to ensure this.

Ukraine has the second-largest HIV epidemic in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, with 250,000 people living with HIV. There has been a huge increase in the use of antiretroviral treatment (ARVs) in recent years but the high rate of new infection threatens to outpace these gains.

This case study goes in depth into Ukraine’s transition from international donor funding to domestically funded HIV and AIDS prevention, care and support programmes since 2018. While this transition is largely seen as a positive step, there have also been many challenges.
