Health Policy Project

The Health Policy Project ended in 2016. Work continued under Health Policy Plus (HP+) until 2022.





Ukraine has one of the fastest growing HIV epidemics in the world, where UNAIDS reports the number of HIV cases diagnosed in the country has doubled since 2001. Ukraine’s epidemic remains concentrated among key populations—primarily people who inject drugs (PWID), sex workers, most-at-risk adolescents, and men who have sex with men (MSM). The Government of Ukraine has recognized the importance of the HIV epidemic, and the country has demonstrated a progressive approach toward creating an enabling policy environment. The government’s increased commitment is evident in the increase in government funding for the HIV response. In 2008, the state provided 45 percent of total HIV funding—up from 38 percent the year before.

What We Do

In Ukraine, the Health Policy Project (HPP) has conducted an assessment of the HIV policy and regulatory environment to develop baseline data that will be used to measure progress toward policy reform resulting from the implementation of the Partnership Framework between the U.S. Government (USG) and the Government of Ukraine.

Building upon the Partnership Framework, the HPP HIV assessment report for Ukraine opens up new possibilities for developing effective mechanisms to support the implementation and enforcement of HIV-related regulations. The HPP assessment also expands the knowledge base related to the policy environment in Ukraine and helps increase Ukrainian consultants’ capacity and knowledge in policy analysis through technical assistance from U.S.-based policy analysts and technical advisors.
