In Ukraine, ICAP is working to strengthen health systems and improve access to HIV treatment, care and prevention

ICAP began its partnership with the Ukrainian Ministry of Health in 2017 to support the national response to the HIV epidemic. ICAP is providing technical assistance and implementation support to the Ukrainian Center for Public Health to facilitate the scale-up of HIV services. Activities specifically target people who inject drugs and their sex partners, as these populations are most affected by the HIV epidemic in the country.

Current Project

Global TA: HIV Technical Support Program in Ukraine

ICAP is providing technical assistance and implementation support at the national and sub-national levels to increase antiretroviral (ART) coverage and improve the quality and efficiency of HIV service delivery. The overall goal is to develop and implement new protocols, approaches, and tools that support decentralized, comprehensive HIV care and treatment services. The program is active in 6 oblasts (administrative regions): Kyiv oblast, Kirovohrad, Mykolayiv, Cherkasy, Kherson, and Odesa. ICAP is also building the capacity of national and regional multidisciplinary teams in 12 PEPFAR-supported oblasts in clinical mentorship and quality improvement methodologies. Activities focus on implementing Test and Start and ART optimization, as well as improving retention in care and treatment and viral suppression for all people living with HIV (funded by PEPFAR through the CDC).
