Since 2005, UNDP has been working in partnership with the Global Fund to support national efforts to respond to HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as well as strengthen health systems in Sudan. UNDP’s TB programme has been aimed at scaling up DOTs (Directly Observed Treatment, Short-Course), including in war-affected and post conflict regions, whilst also raising awareness amongst communities and in political circles. In 2017 UNDP further improved the reach of the TB programme when it handed over a mobile clinic for diagnosis and treatment of Tuberculosis to the Federal Ministry of Health, allowing effective TB treatment to reach remote communities. The HIV/Aids programme in Sudan has been focused on reducing HIV transmission and HIV mortality by firstly increasing the availability of HIV/AIDS facilities nationwide; and secondly to target high risk and vulnerable population groups. The expansion of the national HIV/AIDS response has included an increase in confidential counselling and testing facilities; free distribution of condoms and social marketing; ensuring that blood transfusions in hospitals are from non-remunerated voluntary donors; and that people living with HIV and AIDS receive care and support. The latest round of funding (started in 2018) continues efforts to scale up prevention and treatment programmes with the aim of maintaining prevalence rates for key populations and the general population at below 2.5% and 0.3% respectively. The malaria grant managed by UNDP (now transferred to the Ministry of Health) aimed to increase the percentage of malaria patients receiving prompt and effective treatment and to reach 85% coverage by long lasting insecticide treated bed nets. This included providing first line treatment free of charge; expanding home based management; improving clinical and laboratory diagnosis; and strengthening the Malaria Early Warning System (MEWS).
