The Project includes three components and is carried out at two levels - federal and regional (in Voronezh oblast and Chuvash Republic). Necessary legislative and regulatory documents, guidelines and recommendations are developed at the federal level, and their practical implementation takes place at the regional level, based on the results of which appropriate corrections are made of the federal-level documents. The approaches tested in the pilot regions are further on implemented in the other regions of Russia

The AIDS component provides for the supply of laboratory and medical equipment to the federal and regional HIV/AIDS services (90 laboratories in the civilian sector and 10 laboratories of the penitentiary system of Russia) and STI services (20 centers).
