Let me know when the updated version of the UNDP Health Systems website is online:

Achieving impact through implementation support




In Zimbabwe, 1.1 million people living with HIV are currently receiving treatment as of end-2017. Zimbabwe has seen one of the sharpest declines in HIV prevalence in Southern Africa, with a reduction in the number of new cases of HIV between 2000 and 2016.

Africa Regional Grant


In Malawi, legal support provided through the grant resulted in a landmark ruling on the overly broad criminalization of HIV transmission and exposure.

The ruling is important for tackling discrimination against people living with HIV in Malawi, supporting the right to a fair trial for vulnerable people and setting a precedent on the human rights violations caused by the criminalization of HIV. In another case in Malawi, legal support helped overturn a ruling for sex workers, who had been wrongly convicted due to a misinterpretation of legislation about living on the earnings of sex work.
