What We Do

CDC-Ghana is working directly with the Ghana Health Service to build capacity and to strengthen laboratory systems necessary to support the scale-up of HIV services in the country. CDC is also supporting the Ghana Health Service to improve access to Early Infant Diagnostic (EID) and viral load testing and results.

CDC is supporting the establishment of in-country capacity and infrastructure to implement and evaluate HIV/AIDS-related surveillance systems and to support stakeholders to use the HIV/AIDS data for program planning and evaluation.

In partnership with the Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC) and the School of Public Health (SPH), CDC developed a curriculum and provided training to Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) focal points of organizations providing HIV services to build their capacity in M&E.
