Orenburg HIV/AIDS Information Resource Center

The HIV/AIDS Information Resource Center in Orenburg was established by Orenburg State Medical Academy and American International Health Alliance (AIHA) in 2007 to assist Russia's efforts to scale-up HIV and AIDS-related services. This project is made possible with support of a partnership project on HIV Treatment, Care and Support between Orenburg Oblast and Elmhurst Clinical Hospital, NY. The partnership is financed by USAID through PEPFAR.

The main objective of the Center is to enhance the graduate and post-graduate medical educational programs to provide comprehensive quality treatment and care to people living with HIV through:

  • Securing a system of human capacity building on HIV in the Russian Federation
  • Enhancing professional knowledge and skills of the faculty
  • Developing evidence-based informational resources on HIV/AIDS treatment, care and support
  • Implementing effective practices for health care professionals
