Papua New Guinea
What We Do
CDC-Papua New Guinea supports in-country capacity building to design, implement, and evaluate HIV/AIDS surveillance systems and improve national health information systems to collect, store, analyze, and use high-quality data essential to HIV prevention, care, and treatment.
In addition, CDC-Papua New Guinea partners with National Department of Health (NDoH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to strengthen laboratory capacity through International Organization for Standardization (ISO) accreditation, training field epidemiologists to improve HIV surveillance, improving quality of HIV patient care and treatment, and strengthening organizational governance and management systems by building staff capacity.
To improve the quality of HIV care and treatment by monitoring of quality indicators and to implement quality improvement projects, CDC- Papua New Guinea uses HIV Quality Improvement (HIVQUAL). In partnership with WHO and the NDoH, HIVQUAL has grown from a four hospital pilot to multiple HIV treatment centers throughout the country.
