On October 11, 2021, an online advocacy meeting was held with the participation of representatives

AIDS prevention and control centers in four oblasts; and AIDS service NGOs.

The event is dedicated to ensuring the sustainability of HIV prevention programs by advocating for the allocation of state funding to NGOs to work with key populations (KPG) and people living with HIV (PLHIV).The organizer of the meeting is the Kazakh Scientific Center of Dermatology and Infectious Diseases of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan (KSCDIZ) - the main recipient of the grant under the agreement with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GF) for the implementation of the program "Ensuring the sustainability and continuity of services for key populations and people living with HIV in the Republic of Kazakhstan ”in partnership with the Kameda Public Foundation.Opening the meeting, Deputy Director of KSCDIZ Irina Petrenko said:- Funding from international donors for the allocation of grants is decreasing from year to year. Support from the state is especially important for carrying out preventive measures with the participation of non-governmental organizations, through the allocation of a state social order (PSS) and a state grant. Unfortunately, there is a downward trend in the allocation of NHSs by region on HIV prevention issues. So, the PES for the CTG in 2018 was implemented by 4 NGOs, in 2019 - 5, and in 2020 - only 3 NGOs.Speaking to the participants, the national HIV coordinator of the Global Fund Implementation Group Tatyana Davletgalieva noted:- The existing mechanisms for allocating PES for NGOs have many difficulties in law enforcement practice, they are accompanied by certain difficulties. For example, they do not contain a clear classification of financing mechanisms, the proposed topics of the lots do not correspond to the needs of the CTG and PLHIV.
