The Multi-Country South Asia Global Fund HIV Programme

The Multi-Country South Asia Global Fund HIV Programme is a regional HIV Programme operating in seven countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The overall goal of the programme is to reduce the impact of, and vulnerability to, HIV of men who have sex with men, hijras and transgender people through Community Systems Strengthening (CSS). In Afghanistan, the programme focuses on HIV prevention services for men with high risk behaviour. The programme is supported through a grant from the Global Fund and is currently in its second phase (2013 to present). UNDP served as a technical assistance provider to the grant in phase 1 and Principal Recipient in phase 2 from 2013 until 2016. The current Principal Recipient is Save the Children, Nepal.
