Country Overview

CDC’s work in Senegal dates to 2001 when CDC began supporting the country’s HIV/Sexually Transmitted Infection sentinel surveillance program. Since 2010, CDC has also supported the Ministry of Health’s HIV/AIDS control efforts. CDC works with the Ministry to strengthen its national HIV surveillance system for data collection on key populations–including men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and sex workers – who are at greater risk for HIV infection, and to improve the quality of data for preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV and on-site HIV rapid testing.
