RESPOND Final Conference, November 2017

The RESPOND project, which brought together a diverse set of groups, people and expertise working on the front lines of Ukraine’s HIV response through its five years of implementation, shared its results and discussed with partners how to build on its success in the future.  

USAID/Ukraine’s five-year, $23 million project implemented through PACT, in partnership with FHI 360, collaborated closely with the Government and Ukraine and civil society.  The project was supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

PEPFAR is working toward the global goal of 90-90-90 (90 percent of people will their HIV status, 90 percent of people with diagnosed HIV infection will be on antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 90 percent of those on ART will be virally suppressed).  

The RESPOND project worked in close collaboration with the Government of Ukraine and civil society to help ease the way for Ukraine to reach 90-90-90.

RESPOND has brought together health service providers, NGO social workers and patients, and facilitated their collaboration in order to introduce changes and improve HIV services at the regional and local levels. Medical providers received new clinical skills, collected and analyzed data and learned to use the data for decision making.

“The RESPOND project demonstrates the value of true collaboration, said Susan Fritz, USAID/Ukraine mission director. “Thanks to the work collaboration RESPOND facilitated, stakeholders will continue to collaborate, learn, and sustain all we’ve achieved in Ukraine’s HIV response. This will help us to build a health system that will benefit all Ukrainians.”

At the project’s closing meeting Susan Fritz expressed her support and gratitude for USAID’s partners in Ukraine’s HIV response, and look forward to continued partnership as we implement the country’s health reforms.
