Following recent years of rapid economic growth, Belarus has seen a significant decrease in poverty, though the country is still at risk of economic instability. The HIV epidemic is concentrated among people who inject drugs, men who have sex with men and female sex workers. Funding supports the goal of universal access to HIV prevention, and treatment and care for these groups. Despite significant progress in the national response, the tuberculosis burden remains high. Belarus is one of the 27 countries with the highest burden of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, and the incidence of TB/HIV co-infection in recent years is increasing. Global Fund support to the National Tuberculosis Program contributes to expanding access to quality diagnosis and treatment of TB and multidrug-resistant TB, with a focus on vulnerable groups, improved management of TB/HIV co-infection, and health system strengthening through the introduction of new models of care.Flickr / World Bank / License
