    The Center for Global Health and Prevention (CDC) established an office in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2002. CDC collaborates with the DRC Ministry of Health (MOH) on a variety of areas, including HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), malaria control as a partner in the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), influenza surveillance, rabies surveillance, monkey pox epidemiologic studies, polio eradication and immunization program strengthening.

    Through PEPFAR, the CDC DRC office works closely with the MOH and other in-country partners to improve the national program and sustain an effective national HIV response. Importantly, these activities support a data-driven, evidence-based approach that is tailored to the unique characteristics of the local epidemic for improved program performance and the most efficient use of resources. Program focus areas include: prevention of mother-to-child transmission, pediatric and adult HIV/AIDS care and treatment, tuberculosis/HIV control, national laboratory systems, HIV surveillance,andHIV/AIDSdatamanagementsystems.
