Filetype[PDF-243.06 KB]

  • Description:
    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S. CDC) established an office in Ethiopia in 2001. CDC Ethiopia works closely with the Government of Ethiopia through the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and other partners to save lives by strengthening HIV and Tuberculosis prevention and control efforts through support from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

    Reaching and Sustaining HIV Epidemic Control: CDC Ethiopia is a key partner supporting HIV prevention, HIV case finding, and provision of quality clinical services including adherence and retention of patients in care. CDC Ethiopia is the lead technical partner working with FMOH to establish a national HIV case-based surveillance (CBS) system, an essential tool for monitoring and sustaining epidemic control, reinforcing laboratory and health information systems and data for decision-making. This includes the introduction of recent infection testing for all newly identified cases and response activities for any identified clusters of new HIV infections.

    Building Local Partner Capacity: CDC Ethiopia works closely with FMOH counterparts to implement a sustainable program with shared responsibility. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2018, more than 70% of CDC Ethiopia funding went to local partnerships, including the Ethiopia Public Health Institute (EPHI), the Federal HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Office, Regional Health Bureaus, and local networks of people living with HIV (PLHIV).
