Pact and its local partners are playing a major part in two of Ukraine's most critical struggles—for democracy, and against HIV/AIDS.
Since 2008, Pact has supported local pro-reform civil society organizations working to promote government transparency and accountability, European integration and civic involvement. These civil society partners played a key role in Ukraine’s recent Euromaidan revolution, and today, they are leading the country’s post-revolution reform efforts.

Just as HIV/AIDS infections worldwide are plateauing, even dropping in some places, they are on the rise in Ukraine. Every day, almost 60 Ukrainians, mainly high-risk individuals such as intravenous drug users, sex workers and their partners, prisoners, and men who have sex with men, are diagnosed with HIV.
To cope with this crisis, we are readying three nonprofit organizations—the All-Ukrainian Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS, The International HIV/AIDS Alliance, and The Ukrainian AIDS Center—to lead a strong and sustained fight against HIV. By applying a mix of our trademark approaches—technical assistance, organizational capacity development, and systems strengthening—we are ensuring that when our assistance ends, local organizations can confidently lead the way.
