The USAID Dialogue on HIV and TB Project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is pleased to announce the launch of the USAID Dialogue on HIV and TB Project website. The website, located at www.dialogueproject.org serves to increase the awareness and transparency of the USAID Dialogue on HIV and TB Project’s goals, activities and achievements in the Central Asian region. The website can be viewed in both English and Russian languages.
Highlights of the website include:
- Preview of training materials;
- A calendar of upcoming events;
- News stories of recent events;
- A snapshot of the project’s achievements;
- User friendly research data; and
- Performance and research reports.
The website’s resources comprise training materials for such stakeholders as implementers of health programs, service providers, partners, academics and the community. The “News and Activities” section encourages visitors of the website to find out about the regular events, which take place in the five countries where the Project operates. It is worth mentioning that the Project places great emphasis on measuring health impact of all interventions undertaken. For this reason website visitors with a keen interest in research findings are invited to visit the “Monitoring and Evaluation” section, where they can learn about results obtained from measuring target groups’ behavioral change over time.
The USAID Dialogue on HIV and TB Project is a five-year program aimed at reducing the spread of HIV and tuberculosis (TB) in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan through improving health behaviors among most-at-risk populations. The Project provides technical assistance, training, and direct outreach services to increase access to quality HIV and TB prevention and treatment services among six most at-risk populations: sex workers, injecting drug users, men having sex with men, people living with HIV, prisoners and migrants. The program is implemented by a consortium of non-governmental organizations led by PSI and includes Project HOPE, AIDS Foundation East-West (AFEW) and PF “Kazakh Union of People Living with HIV/AIDS in RK”.
