Project Summary

UNDP has been the principal recipient of Global fund grants in Iran since 2005 for HIV, 2008 for TB and since 2011 for malaria. HIV/AIDS efforts have been focused on key populations at higher risk, with the establishment of 106 harm reduction centres that provide services for those affected by HIV and those who are most vulnerable, women and people who inject drugs. In collaboration with UNAIDS, UNDP has supported the provision of psychosocial care to people living with HIV by establishing 17 peer-support ‘Positive Clubs’.  The TB grant, which has now finished, aimed to support the priority gaps in the National Tuberculosis (TB) Control Programme by dramatically reducing the burden of TB in the poor and vulnerable populations in line with the SDGs and the Stop TB Partnership targets.  Project objectives include enhancing treatment practices, addressing issues related to TB/HIV combination and drug resistant, empowering TB affected people/communities, and enhancing TB control systems and infrastructure. The aim of the malaria grant is elimination of P. Falciparum malaria by 2016 and all cases of malaria including P. Vivax by 2025.
