« Back to Where We Work
In Cote d’Ivoire, ICAP works to strengthen health systems and support the national response to HIV.
We began partnering with the Government of Cote 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 for sustainable HIV programs.
HIV Prevention, Care, and Treatment
ICAP works at the national level with the MOH and health authorities in the regions of Abidjan 2, Agneby-Tiassa, and Loh Djibou to build capacity at the national, regional, and site level to strengthen the provision of HIV testing and counseling, treatment and prevention of mother-to-child transmission, adult and pediatric care and treatment, integrated care for TB/HIV integration, linkage and adherence support, and support monitoring and evaluation systems and laboratory strengthening.

Capacity Building for Nursing and Midwifery
ICAP is improving population-level health by building the capacity of individuals, institutions, and networks to expand, enhance, and sustain the nursing and midwifery workforce in Cote d’Ivoire. Partnering with the Institut National de Formation des Agents de Santé, one of the national nursing education institutions, ICAP is training pre-service nurses and midwives in HIV care and treatment. ICAP also builds the capacity of trained nurses and midwives to lead and support high-impact quality improvement initiatives. (funded by PEPFAR through HRSA)
Global TA: Evaluation of Community Health Worker Model
ICAP is evaluating the impact of using community health workers on a community-facility case management intervention on improving linkage that aims to improve initiation, retention, and adherence to ART in order to achieve viral load suppression among a cohort of newly diagnosed people living with HIV under test and start.
