  • Description:
    The partnership between the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Government of Botswana began in 1995 with the goal of strengthening tuberculosis (TB) prevention and control through public health research. In 2000, the partnership grew to include HIV prevention, care, treatment, and strategic information capacity development in order to maximize the quality, coverage, and impact of Botswana’s national response to the HIV epidemic. CDC Botswana supports the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to reach HIV epidemic control. CDC’s implementing partners (IPs) focus on improving the quality of HIV and TB services across the HIV care continuum. CDC/PEPFAR programs incorporate innovative biomedical interventions and evidence based strategies to ensure high-quality programs, utilizing US Government funding most effectively and efficiently. CDC’s facility- based HIV testing program focuses on accurate HIV testing, and identifying those most likely to be HIV positive or with the greatest risk of transmitting HIV infection, then linking them to HIV clinical services and immediately initiating antiretroviral treatment (ART). CDC Botswana actively monitors the quality of HIV treatment, including maintaining people on ART and in HIV clinical care. The voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) program, through various campaigns, helps to keep boys and men HIV-free. CDC and implementing partners focus on enhancing HIV quality services through training, mentoring, and supportive supervision as well as initiating routine, comprehensive site monitoring visits and remediation plans. CDC supports implementation of new HIV diagnostic testing, HIV viral load detection technologies, and high-quality laboratory services overall. CDC Botswana focuses on the collection and analysis of high-quality epidemiologic data, and provides technical assistance to build its capacity to develop, implement, and disseminate population- based surveys, improve the quality of national health information systems, and report on PEPFAR program indicators. It monitors and evaluates results and adjusts the national program to improve outcomes. Botswana.pdf
