Project Summary

UNDP has supported the implementation of Global Fund HIV and TB grants in Montenegro since 2010. The HIV programme focused on prevention activities targeting key populations, increased quality of care and support to those affected by HIV and AIDS, as well as strengthening of the HIV surveillance system. With UNDP’s support, HIV prevention services including a needle exchange programme, condom and lubricant distribution, counselling, and distribution of education and communication materials reached more than 6700 Roma youth, 1800 prisoners, 2500 people who use drugs, 1500 men who have sex with and 600 commercial sex workers (CSW). The TB grant helped to improve the TB surveillance system, strengthened clinical capacity and laboratory services, increased access to Directly Observed Treatment Short-course (DOTS), and worked to reduce the stigma associated with TB. In the last year of the programme (2015) UNDP worked with the Ministry of Health to transition the HIV and TB grants from Global Fund support to a government-supported program.
