  • Description:
    Since 2003, the CDC-Central American Regional Office partners with the Ministries of Health (MOHs) and the Council of Health

    Ministers of Central America to respond to the HIV epidemic in the region by strengthening strategic information and prevention strategies targeting key populations and improving the quality of HIV and tuberculosis (TB) care and treatment services to people living with HIV (PLHIV). CDC supports the countries to achieve the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) fast track 90-90-90 targets - by 2020, 90% of all PLHIV will know their HIV status; by 2020, 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy (ART); and by 2020, 90% of all people receiving ART will have viral suppression. CDC remains committed to working closely with the MOHs, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), UNAIDS, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), civil society, and other key partners in expanding effective HIV testing and counseling strategies, linking newly diagnosed individuals to treatment, intensifying TB case finding among PLHIV, conducting TB infection control assessments in HIV clinics, piloting “Test and Start”, implementing differentiated service delivery models, and strengthening laboratory, health information, and surveillance systems in the region.
