Making a Measurable Difference in Global Public Health
Since its founding in 2003, ICAP has made a continued and marked impact on global health. From HIV testing and tuberculosis screening to support for maternal and child health to response to emerging infectious disease outbreaks, ICAP has reached millions of people in low- and middle-income countries, implementing innovative solutions to critical health challenges and improving the health and wellbeing of vulnerable populations.
As a central tenant of its mission to strengthen health systems, ICAP has supported thousands of health facilities and laboratories, and trained whole new cadres of health care workers, from nurses and midwives to community health workers. ICAP’s experts have undertaken hundreds of cutting-edge research studies that have led to innovations in how to prevent and treat HIV and other infectious diseases. Additionally, ICAP has made an impact by measuring the effectiveness of national and regional public health interventions through its range of surveys that collect and analyze critical data that governments, health officials, and implementing partners can use to chart progress and target programs to achieve truly transformative health outcomes.
