    The CDC Haiti office opened in 2002. Working in close collaboration with Haiti’s Ministry of Health (MSPP), CDC is supporting the national response to HIV/AIDS by preventing the transmission of HIV, including mother-to-child, providing and increasing the accessibility and quality of HIV clinical services, care and treatment, increasing patient adherence and retention, and strengthening surveillance, epidemiology, laboratory, and health management information systems and expanding the number of facilities offering MDR-TB treatment. Strengthening Health Systems: To ensure a sustainable and robust health system, CDC supports critical staffing needs, impactful training programs for medical and paramedical personnel, strengthening of Ministry of Health governance and financial management mechanisms, and strategic information systems and data use for informed decision-making. Strengthening Laboratory Systems and Networks: CDC is working with the National Public Health Laboratory to develop multiple testing capacities, including PCR for diagnosis of HIV in infants, scale up of viral load testing, increasing ART coverage for TB/HIV co-infected patients, and testing for opportunistic infections in HIV-infected people. CDC has helped the country to establish an external quality assurance program and a training curriculum to build capacity for lab accreditation. haiti-2017-2.13.2017.pdf
