The Republic of Congo has just received support from the Global Fund under the 2021-2023 grant cycle to strengthen the response to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has been chosen by the Government and the Global Fund to be the Principal Recipient for the implementation of this support through the grant dedicated to the COVID-19 response mechanism, or C19RM for the fight against HIV and tuberculosis.

With the aim of strengthening prevention and care services to fight against HIV and tuberculosis, as well as building resilient and sustainable health systems in Congo in order to ensure quality support to the Ministry in charge of Health in the Republic of Congo, UNDP requires UNOPS’s services in order to (i) strengthen the capacities of the health system and (ii) to improve prevention and care for people living with HIV and Tuberculosis on the other hand.
