    • Description:
      CDC works with the Uganda Ministry of Health (MoH), and Implementing Partners (IPs) to provide high- quality HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. Using a service-delivery model integrated with national, regional and district structures, CDC builds capacity and promotes ownership at all health system levels in complementing activities of the severely burdened public health system. Strengthening National Public Health Systems: Through technical leadership and direct assistance, CDC supports the MoH to execute its essential public health functions through laboratory infrastructure improvement, health management information systems, public health workforce development, operations research and other health priorities. Supporting HIV epidemic control efforts: CDC has been supporting IPs to find the remaining persons living with HIV by testing those most at risk. In addition, CDC has been supporting the expansion of HIV treatment to all HIV-positive Ugandans immediately upon diagnosis, irrespective of disease staging or CD4 cell count, as bolstered by the ‘Test and Treat’ policy guidelines launched in November 2016. With CDC support, viral load (VL) testing is being scaled up through an innovative specimen transport system and a dash-board which provides live data on VL coverage and suppression rates. Strengthening TB/HIV integrated services: CDC supports TB diagnosis through systematic TB screening for clients attending HIV clinics including increased access to and utilization of Gene Xpert MTB/Rif, strengthening of the sample transport system, quality assurance for TB diagnostics, and a focus on capacity improvement for pediatric TB diagnosis, care, and treatment. In addition, CDC funds the provision of HIV testing, linkage to HIV care and ART for TB/HIV Co-infected clients, the integration of TB services into existing PMTCT/ART services plus preventive TB therapy. uganda-2017-2.14.2017.pdf
