Project Summary

In Haiti UNDP worked in partnership with the Global Fund from 2003 to 2005 and then again following the earthquake from 2011 to 2016. UNDP linked the Global Fund programme with post-earthquake recovery efforts and Health sector strategic plan, making sure that displaced people benefited from HIV services, particularly key populations at higher risk such as sex workers, men who have sex with men (MSM), and youth. UNDP-supported programmes reached 1.5 million at-risk Haitians with voluntary counselling and testing services, and provided effective HIV education to over 15,000 youth, thus contributing to the dissemination of accurate information, promoting awareness and tackling stigma and discrimination. UNDP also supported the Ministry of Health in covering 47% of the country’s need for anti-retroviral therapy (ART) and 100% of first line anti-TB drugs.
