Côte d’Ivoire

Before PEPFAR’s 2022 country operational plan, ICAP’s approach in Côte d’Ivoire was to improve HIV prevention, care, and treatment, focusing on high-impact strategies such as targeted HIV testing, including index testing and differentiated service delivery models, with innovative capacity-building approaches in laboratory and pharmacy support, quality improvement, and monitoring and evaluation to ensure long-term sustainability and epidemic control. Since 2016, ICAP has also been working with the Ministry of Health to conduct an HIV population-based survey to assess the impact of Côte d’Ivoire’s national HIV response and guide future efforts. ICAP is currently concentrating on supporting the National HIV Program (PNLS) through ICAP’s HIV Learning Network, CQUIN, and Global Fund technical assistance to implement differentiated services along the HIV cascade.
