USAID-Ukraine HIV-AIDS programs

USAID-Ukraine HIV-AIDS program

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Ukraine is seeking grant proposals from NGO or for-profit nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to assist in implementation of Improved HIV/AIDS Services among Most-at-Risk Populations (MARPs) in Ukraine. USAID plans to provide a maximum of $22,000,000 to be allocated over a five-year period. USAID intends to award a single cooperative agreement as a result of this solicitation.

Program Objectives

=> Increase the quality of HIV/AIDS services targeted to MAPRs and their sexual partners

=> improve the design of HIV/AIDS services that are data-driven and respond to changing epidemic patterns

=> Improve the delivery of state of the art HIV/AIDS services

=> Strengthen the capacity of Ukrainian Institutions to deliver quality HIV/AIDS programs

Overall Project Approach

USAID/Ukraine is supporting the Improved HIV/AIDS Services among Most-at-Risk Populations project to reduce HIV transmission among most-at-risk populations (MARPs) through state of the art HIV/AIDS services delivered by Ukrainian organizations. These services include a range of behavioral, biomedical, and structural HIV/AIDS activities, community- and facility-based services, and communications. The project will provide technical assistance to national and local Ukrainian organizations to improve MARP's access to and use of HIV/AIDS services, with a focus on HIV prevention. At the end of the program's five years, Ukrainian organizations will have measurably increased capacity to deliver comprehensive, data-driven HIV/AIDS services with the ability to adjust these programs to changing epidemic patterns. Post-project, Ukrainian organizations will be able to access state of the art technical and capacity building resources offered through strengthened in-country organizations. The Improved HIV/AIDS Services among Most-at-Risk Populations project will work with national stakeholders and other donors to ensure cohesiveness with Partnership Framework goals. This program complements and adds value to existing and forthcoming HIV/AIDS initiatives, including those supported by the Global Fund and the United States Government (USG). The program builds upon achievements and lessons learned from current HIV/AIDS interventions.

Important Note –

Please, do not send unsolicited emails or mail seeking funding support to donor agencies. This will discredit your NGO and can also bring bad reputation to you as an individual as well as a NGO.

Fund raising is a competitive process and you need to follow ethics and not spam donor emails with long, unrelated requests for fund / grant support. If you just keep sending emails seeking support without knowing your donor, your chances of raising funds for your NGO will be drastically reduced and you may be blacklisted as a spammer.
