Global Technical Assistance

Providing Expertise Where It’s Needed Most

The Global Technical Assistance Project

(2014-2020)

The Global Technical Assistance Project, funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was an ambitious, six-year project comprising 26 individual projects across 24 PEPFAR and Global Fund-supported countries. Working in close collaboration with CDC, ICAP leveraged its deep expertise and experience as a technical assistance and capacity-building innovator across the spectrum of HIV technical domains and service areas, including:

  • Pediatric and adult HIV care and treatment
  • HIV testing
  • HIV prevention
  • Health systems strengthening
  • Human resources for health
  • Strategic information and surveillance
  • Laboratory

ICAP provided responsive and cost-effective technical assistance to ministries of health, implementing partners, and other stakeholders in partner countries to close gaps in HIV service delivery, strengthen the health workforce, and support ministries of health to collect and use strategic information to inform national policies and programs that drive progress toward HIV epidemic control.
