What We Do

CDC has had a long-standing partnership with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Ministry of Health (MOH) since 2002. DRC is one of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief’s (PEPFAR) 16 long-term strategy countries. Current HIV/AIDS activities are focused in the three most populated provinces of DRC: Kinshasa, Katanga, and Orientale.

The CDC-DRC office focuses on providing support to policy development in key technical areas, preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), preventing new HIV infections among key populations, and providing care and treatment services. Additional priorities include supporting sexual and gender-based violence services, strengthening HIV laboratory and related diagnostic services, establishing and strengthening surveillance and electronic reporting systems, and developing human resources for health through the field epidemiology and laboratory training program.
