Project Summary

The HIV grant supports the HIV treatment programme, with 67,000 people currently on treatment. The programme also supports pregnant women with HIV in prevention of mother-to-child transmission. It takes a human rights based approach to tackling the HIV epidemic, particularly in relation to key populations, with the aim of removing barriers to accessing HIV services. This will include the development of a national strategic plan on key populations, including sex workers and men who have sex with men. Malaria is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Angola with the number of deaths due to the disease estimated as being 21,000 in 2012. However based on proportional malaria mortality rates, projections indicate that the total annual number of deaths may be as high as 100,000. Between 2005 and 2008, UNDP managed the Global Fund Malaria programme in Angola, with the aim to reduce the burden of malaria in the country through the strengthening of local health services and improving access to malaria treatment for populations most at risk, particularly pregnant women and children under five.
