  • Description:
    Senegal is one of the countries where the HIV epidemic is concentrated, with an HIV prevalence of less than < 1% in the general the population but very high (up to 20%) among certain key populations such as female sex workers (FSWs) and men who have sex with men (MSM).

    The CDC began working in Senegal in 2001, supporting the HIV/STI sentinel surveillance program. Since 2010, through the President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (PEPFAR), CDC has continued to support Senegal’s Ministry of Health to build a sustainable and reliable national HIV surveillance system by developing a functioning HIV case reporting system, supporting the collection of quality data on key populations such as FSWs and MSM and in high prevalence areas, strengthening the quality of routine prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV data and on site HIV Rapid testing.

    CDC has also provided support in laboratory capacity building, and the implementation of effective laboratory quality management system (QMS), including external quality assurance (EQA) to address existing challenges and gaps in HIV testing and ensure access to high quality HIV diagnostics, in particular for Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) and Viral Load (VL) testing.
