Angola is working to strengthen its national health infrastructure to address pressing challenges in HIV, tuberculosis, and sexual and reproductive health. ICAP provides technical assistance to 22 selected health facilities in four provinces to strengthen HIV testing, care, and treatment, including prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) and HIV/TB co-infection for seamless, effective service provision. With ICAP’s support, Angola is developing its national health information system so decision-makers can recognize trends to direct resources where they are most needed.
