What We Do
CDC began working in Côte d’Ivoire in 1987, establishing a field station in Abidjan and launching the Retrovirus Côte d’Ivoire (CDC Retro-CI) project to research some of the most important questions about HIV worldwide. Key HIV focus areas include HIV testing and Counseling (HTC), Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT), blood and injection safety, strategic information, laboratory system strengthening, key and priority populations, and HIV care and treatment. In addition, there is a strong focus on addressing tuberculosis (TB) as well as enhancing pediatric treatment coverage.
CDC works closely with the Ivorian Ministry of Health and Fight Against AIDS (MSLS) to integrate comprehensive HIV services in country to enable greater coordination and leveraging of funds across government sectors.
