CDC’s Global Health Programs
Offering Health and Clinical Services that
CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) Global AIDS Program (GAP). DB helped to establish technical and financial infrastructure systems for GAP’s missions to Ethiopia and Malawi. We also developed protocols for establishing and maintaining relationships with each country’s local organizations, Ministry of Health, military, schools, and hospitals, as well as with U.S. entities. In Ethiopia, DB developed and implemented monitoring and evaluation systems and appropriate training programs to improve the effectiveness of public health programs for HIV/AIDS, TB, and sexually transmitted infections. Additionally, our team facilitated linkages to other in-country programs and organizations to promote the sharing of evaluation data and information gathered through program monitoring.
CDC’s Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETP). DB assists Haiti’s Ministry of Health and Population in providing public health support services aimed at helping communities recover from the powerful January 2010 earthquake. We collaborate with CDC FETP staff, other U.S. civilian and defense agencies, academic institutions, and Haiti’s Ministry of Health on the development of curriculum and design of training programs that address topics ranging from epidemiology, to data analysis, to scientific communication, to surveillance, to outbreak/emergency response. Our technical assistance includes helping the country enhance its capacity to respond to emergencies, including conducting outbreak investigations.
