Belarus is an example of a country that is increasing national spending to fund programs to fight HIV and tuberculosis. The country now finances 95 percent of its antiretroviral drugs and 100 percent of drugs to treat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. Between 2008 and 2013, 33 percent fewer people died from TB. HIV prevalence is low, but is highly concentrated among key populations. People who inject drugs are particularly affected, as well as female sex workers and men who have sex with men. One of the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Prevention Program 2016-2020 is to address stigma, discrimination and legal barriers to achieving universal access to HIV, treatment and care services.
