Audit of USAID/Peru’s Health Program Relating to Tuberculosis and HIV Infections.
Fiscal Year: 2011
In FY 2009, USAID implemented a new project to continue its HIV/AIDS support to national and regional health authorities. Peru reported 35,797 cases of HIV infection and 23,389 cases of AIDS. Prevalence in the general population has been stable in recent years but with an uneven distribution of cases and risk in a concentrated epidemic. In rural Amazonian and urban areas, HIV prevalence is higher (1.5 percent among males 18–29 years old).
In most cases, HIV infection is transmitted sexually. The problem of vulnerable children and adolescents living with HIV/AIDS is a growing concern in Peru. In addition, in FY 2009, USAID continued to support the Ministry of Health’s efforts to reduce the threat of all forms of TB.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Peru’s health program relating to HIV/AIDs and TB is strengthening the Ministry of Health’s ability to regulate and oversee the health system in regional and local governments.
