« Back to Where We Work
In Malawi, ICAP works to strengthen health systems and support the national response to HIV.
We began partnering with the Government of Malawi in 2011 to strengthen health education. ICAP now provides broader technical assistance to the Ministry of Health to strengthen HIV prevention, care, and treatment.
HIV Impact Assessment Survey (PHIA)
ICAP is providing technical assistance and support to Malawi’s MOH to conduct a population-based HIV impact assessment (PHIA) survey to assess HIV prevalence, incidence, and access to prevention, care, and treatment services. Survey findings will be used assess the impact of Malawi’s HIV response at a national level and to help guide and target future investment and programs. (funded by PEPFAR through the CDC)
Nursing Education Partnership Initiative
Expanding the role of nurses and midwives is critical to meeting Malawi’s national healthcare needs and addressing HIV, tuberculosis, and other diseases. In Malawi, ICAP is working with the MOH to build the capacity of health training institutions, enhance teaching and learning in the classroom and clinical settings, and use innovative curricula to reduce time to accreditation. Through NEPI, ICAP provides tuition assistance, supports simulation labs, and offers online training in Option B+ for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. ICAP also supports the development and implementation of higher degree programs to support the scale-up of the healthcare workforce. Learn more at nepinetwork.org (funded by PEPFAR through HRSA)
