    For 15 years, since 2002, CDC has been committed to supporting the Rwandan Ministry of Health (MOH) strengthen its capacity to prevent, detect and respond to public health threats through health workforce capacity building in the areas of; prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT); HIV testing and counseling; antiretroviral therapy (ART); TB/HIV integration; laboratory and blood safety; health informatics; surveillance; and monitoring and evaluation.

    Strengthening Clinical Services: CDC provides support and technical assistance to build expertise for MOH’s facility-based clinical services to provide comprehensive, integrated HIV clinical care and treatment services. CDC also supports the scale-up of "one-stop" TB/HIV integrated services, offered at all 200 current MOH Testing and Treatment Centers.

    Strengthening Laboratory Systems: CDC helps develop in-country expertise for laboratory accreditation, strengthening lab infrastructure, and improving capacity to deliver of high quality clinical laboratory services, including support for the Strengthening Laboratory Management towards Accreditation (SLMTA) which has led to improved laboratory standards and strengthened technical expertise in blood safety and transfusion.

    Strengthening Health Information Systems and Surveillance: CDC supports the innovative use of electronic health information systems to support the prevention, detection, care and treatment as well as reporting of HIV. Using data from multiple electronic systems, a case-based surveillance system is being developed to promote more accurate understanding of HIV transmission and to improve individual health outcomes.

    Strengthening Science and Impact: CDC supports HIV surveillance surveys, program evaluations and impact assessments. The Science Team’s strategic focus is to strengthen the capacity of implementing partners to measure progress toward epidemic control, to assess impact, to use data for program improvement, and to maintain scientific integrity.
