Abstract

Indonesia has recently strengthened efforts to control HIV and tuberculosis (TB), but the diversion of resources to the current pandemic combined with social distancing policies is creating new vulnerabilities and exacerbating existing ones for people who rely on TB and HIV services. Indonesia urgently needs to understand the wider impact of the pandemic on TB and HIV care to inform mitigation strategies. This project will build on strong, existing collaborative research relationships to rapidly assess the impact of COVID-19, and policy responses to it, on the delivery of, and access to, TB and HIV care, with a particular emphasis on highly vulnerable populations. Findings will be used to design strategies to safeguard the continuity of care for TB and HIV patients in the near and medium term, thereby ensuring the country does not lose ground on the major advances it has made towards the control of these diseases. "This project will provide directions to strengthen the tuberculosis and HIV program's resilience in Indonesia that has been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic."
