Global Technical AssistanceProviding Expertise Where It’s Needed Most
The Global Technical Assistance Program (GTA)
ICAP provided targeted technical assistance in Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT), adult and pediatric HIV care and treatment, and surveillance and strategic information to countries supported by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund for AIDS, TB, and Malaria. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) country teams can receive assistance in the form of short-term projects or longer engagements of six to twelve months, depending on the need and scope of work.
ICAP worked in close collaboration with CDC and its global network of experts, consultants, and partners to provide technical assistance guided by five core principles: access, acceptability, quality, coverage, and effectiveness.
