  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has collaborated since 2007 with Lesotho's Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) and its implementing partners to improve public health policies, services, and capacity development. CDC plays a pivotal role in the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) program in Lesotho. CDC, along with other U.S. government agencies and implementing partners, signed the PEPFAR Partnership Framework with the government of Lesotho in 2009. This document provides guidance for implementing PEPFAR funding in Lesotho. CDC’s work focuses on HIV/AIDS counseling and testing, tuberculosis (TB)/HIV care, blood safety, laboratory infrastructure, and strategic information. CDC initiatives have improved access to HIV/AIDS care and treatment, bolstered prevention programs, and strengthened health systems.
