What We Do
CDC’s HIV/AIDS office in Uganda works closely with the Ministry of Health (MoH), local government, and academia, and supports faith-based organizations, civil society, and the private sector to complement activities of the severely burdened public health system. CDC plays a critical role in strengthening laboratory services, health information services, HIV prevention and treatment programs, and supports country ownership of these services.
CDC is focused on expanding TB/HIV integrated service delivery, improving diagnosis and treatment of multi-drug resistant TB (MDR TB), and working to strengthen health systems. This includes building laboratory capacity, strengthening epidemiology, surveillance, and health information systems, and monitoring and evaluating program performance.
