  • Description:
    The CDC-Namibia office, established in 2002, has satellite offices in Zambezi, Kavango east and Oshana regions to help implement key HIV programs in these high HIV burden regions. The CDC team works with the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) to build health system capacity and implement high-impact HIV programs, including HIV testing and counseling (HTC), prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), antiretroviral therapy (ART), voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) program, and scale up ART in high burden areas for HIV epidemic control. Building Workforce Capacity: CDC works with the MOHSS to ensure adequate supply of skilled medical health professionals, monitoring and evaluation officers as well as mentoring of clinical staff, including the CDC launched Clinical Analysis, Interpretation, and Report (CAIR) tool. Strengthening Laboratory Systems: The Namibia Institute of Pathology, (NIP) is receiving CDC technical support to roll-out and routinize viral load testing. As Namibia continues to decentralize services and works to reaching the target of 90% of all individuals on ART maintaining viral load suppression, a strong lab system and network is critical. CDC also works with NIP to ensure the quality of all HIV and TB testing nationally. Strengthening Surveillance and Health Information Systems: CDC continues to provide technical assistance to build capacity to collect and analyze data for improved program decision-making. CDC provides technical and financial support to monitor transmission and any emergence of HIV drug resistant strains, and monitor the impact of HIV interventions on prevalence and incidence. namibia-2017-2.13.2017.pdf
