The HIV epidemic in Ukraine is severe and concentrated: it is estimated that there were 211,800–237,000 HIV-positive individuals in the country in 2013. Once dominated by infections among people who inject drugs (PWID), the adult HIV incidence in Ukraine is increasing among other key populations and the national prevention strategy must adapt. These populations include female sex workers (FSWs), clients and casual partners of FSWs, and men who have sex with men (MSM), among others. In this context, the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project partnered with the State Service of Ukraine on HIV/AIDS and the Institute for Economy and Forecasting to analyze the cost and effectiveness of HIV prevention from 2014–2018. Conducted in July 2013, the analysis aimed to inform the National AIDS Programme (NAP) 2014–2018. This poster was presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia.
