Prospects for cooperation in the health sector in Uzbekistan
AFEW International is considering possibilities to implement two projects in Uzbekistan. The first one is to develop and improve the quality of HIV testing and prevention services for key populations and support people living with HIV.
The second project, entitled “Strengthening civil society in inclusive health care in Uzbekistan”, is currently under consideration by the European Commission and is on the reserve list of projects.
At the end of the meeting, the parties agreed on a schedule for the AFEW International delegation to visit Tashkent on 15-16 January 2020. AFEW International’s team will have negotiations with the Republican AIDS Center, as well as with representatives of some international organizations, which may act as donors for the implementation of projects of the non-governmental organization in Uzbekistan.
AFEW International already has experience in working in Uzbekistan: the organization supported several projects in the country through ESF, as well as was involved in preparations for the AIDS2018 conference. In addition, representatives from Uzbekistan participated in AFEW International’s community based research education project.
