  • Description:
    The partnership between CDC and the Government of Ghana began in 2008, with the goal of strengthening HIV prevention and control. Over the past 10 years, CDC’s global HIV/AIDS focus has transitioned from an emergency response approach to one of sustainability and shared responsibility. The Ghana program has moved from one focused mainly on prevention in Key Populations, to one that now also includes supporting Ghana’s recent adoption of the 2015 WHO guidelines to treat all HIV+ persons.

    CDC is the lead for laboratory efforts within the PEPFAR Ghana team, improving the skills of laboratorians, and efficiency of laboratory services. CDC, together with the Government of Ghana, assesses these laboratorian skills in real-world settings, and together address any shortfalls that are recognized. CDC is piloting efforts to improve sample transport systems. These efforts will help improve the quality of HIV care and treatment services as patients will no longer have to travel long distances to be tested.

    CDC also leads PEPFAR Ghana’s strategic information activities, including efforts to improve the ability to capture and analyze data across the HIV Cascade, from testing, to initiation of treatment, to suppression of viral load. CDC also helps develop and conduct research studies on Key Populations (Female Sex Workers and Men who have Sex with Men). Together these efforts provide PEPFAR Ghana with the tools and data needed to best target our HIV efforts.
