Our Support

Regarding, the HIV response, UNDP Zambia works within the framework of the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV&AIDS 2011-2015, convening UN Agencies on response management and coordination. This support is well aligned to the National HIV&AIDS Strategic Framework (NASF) 2011-2015 priorities. UNDP is the temporary Principal Recipient (PR) of the Global Fund on AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to support the Ministry of Health (MoH) to ensure a continuous supply of commodities as an integral part of the programme, policy and advocacy support to strengthen national health delivery system.
