On September 21, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria supported the request for additional funding of a new regional project worth $2.5 million.
Thanks to this Global Fund decision, the project “Sustainability of services for key populations in EECA region” includes now 5 more countries in the South-Eastern Europe – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia.
Thanks to increased funding, the project will strengthen the role of networks of key communities throughout the region of SEAC.
“The Global Fund will finance project ‘Sustainability of services for key populations in EECA region’ in the maximum possible amount – USD 13 million. The project will be implemented simultaneously in the maximum number of countries – 14 countries in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region! There was not such an ambitious and large-scale project in EECA region before. The next three years will require a lot of efforts from all of us. However, this is exactly what we need!” – said Andriy Klepikov, the executive director of the Alliance for Public Health which is the main recipient of the new regional project.
