Together for Health PPP with Chevron

Status 
Active
Region 
Asia
Description 
USAID extended for a year its public-private partnership with Chevron in Turkmenistan that began in 2009. Though funds were not obligated via USAID, the activity is a great example how USAID and private sector work together despite lack of USG funding. The 'Together for Health’ Project supports outreach activities at a resource center through its partnerships with the National Red Crescent Society and the local NGO, Engme, and continues to expand its support to drop-in centers to provide injection drug users with counseling services, HIV and TB-prevention education, and referrals for medical services. Previously, the project supported two youth centers which provided HIV counseling, reproductive health and TB education, computer literacy and English lessons to address the needs of at-risk youth. Chevron provided annual donations to support healthy lifestyles and HIV prevention among youth through the provision of office equipment, computers, and software to the resource center and drop-in centers. In 2015, 8,915 youth, including disabled youth, enrolled in 'Together for Health' activities. The drop-in centers provided HIV, STI and TB prevention education and healthy lifestyle promotion to 2,704 individuals, including commercial sex workers, drug users and their co-dependents.
