  • Description:
    CDC Tanzania works with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children (MOHCDGEC) on the mainland and the Ministry of Health on Zanzibar to support HIV testing, prevention, care and treatment services, and to strengthen the health systems. Strengthening Public Health Systems: CDC supports HIV rapid testing quality assurance, early infant HIV diagnosis, and viral load testing; health worker production, deployment and retention; and strengthening health information systems to inform data for decision making. Scale-up of HIV Care and Treatment and Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC): CDC collaborates with MOHCDGEC to initiate the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Test and Start policy, so those who are HIV positive can immediately begin ART treatment, regardless of CD4 count or HIV clinical staging. CDC provides technical assistance to increase VMMC in Tanzania as part of its HIV risk- reduction program. Reaching Key Populations and Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission Transition to Option B+: CDC supports formative research, testing, prevention, and linkage to care and treatment services for key populations, including pharmaceutical treatment for people who inject drugs. CDC provides technical assistance for improvement of mother-infant pair cohort monitoring and skill building of healthcare workers to use data on testing, linkage, enrollment, and retention in ART for pregnant women and infants. tanzania-2017-2.14.2017.pdf
