Project Summary

On the island state of São Tomé and Príncipe, UNDP manages the combined Global Fund grant for HIV and TB.  The HIV program supports the treatment of sexually transmitted infections, HIV counselling and testing, integration of prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services at the health district level, and prevention activities for key populations at higher risk, such as men who have sex with men (MSM) and commercial sex workers (CSW).   UNDP is working with the National TB Program to expand Directly Observed Treatment, Short-course (DOTS), with a particular focus on HIV/TB co-infection and multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) patients. The malaria programme (no longer funded by the Global Fund) targeted the general population, pregnant women, and children under the age five. With Global Fund and UNDP support, the country has achieved high rates of coverage of insecticide treated bed nets, indoor residual spraying, and diagnostic testing, and has delivered sufficient ACTs to treat all patients with malaria attending public health facilities.
