Together For Health: The Islamic Republic of Iran with the Global Fund & UNDP
Since its inception in 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has emerged as a prime source of support in the global fight against the three diseases. The financial and technical support provided to developing country partners has brought increased capacity and rigor to the national planning and implementation of disease control strategies.
In the Islamic Republic of Iran, the partnership with the Global Fund, which started with an HIV grant in 2005, has – over the years – grown into a large portfolio of about $100 million dollars to support specific areas in the implementation of Iran’s successive National Strategic Plans on controlling the “Three Diseases”.
This report provides an overview of the activities undertaken and results achieved through this partnership.
