Swaziland (Eswatini)

Through concentrated efforts between 2011 and 2016, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) cut the rate of new HIV infections in half, according to the SHIMS and SHIMS2 national HIV population-based surveys conducted by ICAP. ICAP is also a major supporter of these efforts, with projects focusing on prevention of maternal-to-child transmission (PMTCT), early infant diagnosis, HIV drug resistance surveillance, laboratory improvement, and ongoing training of health care workers, epidemiologists, and researchers.
