« Back to Where We Work
In Côte d’Ivoire, ICAP works to strengthen health systems and support the national response to HIV.
We began partnering with the Government of Côte d’Ivoire in 2003 to support family-focused HIV prevention, care, and treatment. ICAP now provides implementation support for HIV programs with a focus on capacity building and quality improvement.
Implementation of Programs for the Prevention, Care, and Treatment of HIV/AIDS
Building on its long-standing partnership with Côte d’Ivoire’s Ministry of Health, ICAP is supporting HIV prevention, counseling, treatment, and support services in 12 districts prioritized by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and at the University Teaching Hospital of Cocody. The project leverages evidence-based targeted HIV testing and differentiated service delivery models, with innovative capacity building approaches in laboratory and pharmacy support, quality improvement, and monitoring and evaluation. The aim of the project is to ensure comprehensive HIV services for patients, while strengthening the capacity of national health structures to reach the 90-90-90 HIV treatment targets.

HIV Impact Assessment Survey (PHIA Project)
ICAP is providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Health to conduct the Côte d’Ivoire Population-based HIV Impact Assessment survey to assess HIV prevalence, incidence, and access to prevention, care, and treatment services. The survey includes household-based interviews and HIV counseling and testing for adults and children. Survey findings will be used to assess the impact of Côte d’Ivoire’s HIV response at the national level and to help guide and target future investment and programs. (funded by PEPFAR through the CDC)
Capacity Building for Nursing and Midwifery
Through the Global Nurse Capacity Building Program, ICAP is improving population health by building the capacity of individuals, institutions, and networks to expand, enhance, and sustain the nursing workforce. ICAP is developing the skills of nurses and midwives to lead and support high-impact quality improvement initiatives. In Côte d’Ivoire, ICAP is strengthening the ability of faculty to train pre-service nurses and midwives in HIV care and treatment. (funded by the PEPFAR through HRSA)
Global TA: Evaluation of Community Health Worker Model
ICAP is working with the Ministry of Health and health authorities in the regions of Abidjan 2, Agneby-Tiassa, and Loh Djibou to build capacity and strengthen the provision of HIV testing and counseling, treatment and prevention of mother-to-child transmission, TB/HIV integration, and linkage and adherence support, and support monitoring and evaluation systems and laboratory strengthening.

Recently Completed Projects
HIV Prevention, Care, and Treatment (2011 – 2017)
ICAP provided intensive technical assistance and logistical support to 192 health facilities in four regions of Côte d’Ivoire and two tertiary care facilities in Abidjan, measurably increasing the uptake and quality of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. Gains were achieved through a dynamic partnership with the Ministry of Health, capacity strengthening of decentralized health management teams and multidisciplinary teams of health care workers, and direct engagement of people living with HIV in the design and implementation of health services.
