What We Do
Founded in 2003, CDC-Brazil works in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) Secretariat of Health Surveillance to foster evidence-based decision-making and promote the use of new and innovative technologies to control the country’s concentrated HIV/AIDS epidemic.
CDC provides technical leadership and direct assistance to the MOH to strengthen HIV programming, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), epidemiological surveillance, and laboratory services. CDC also leads and co-funds studies and trainings, and encourages two-way knowledge sharing.
With support from the Key Populations Implementation Science (KPIS) fund, CDC-Brazil implements the “A Hora é Agora” (The Time Is Now) Program to expand HIV rapid testing among MSM, and to ensure linkage to care in partnership with the Curitiba Municipal Health Secretariat.
In partnership with the MOH’s Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ), CDC provides technical support to on-site and online M&E programs at the certificate and Masters levels.
