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 at selected health facilities in four provinces to strengthen HIV testing, care, and treatment, with particular emphasis on preventing mother-to-child transmission and advanced HIV/TB program integration for seamless, adequate service provision. In addition, Angola is developing its national health information system with ICAP’s support so decision-makers can recognize trends to direct resources where they are most needed.
