Project details

ICAP is working with local and international partners to conduct an analysis of patient spending on antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Côte d’Ivoire. Personal spending is a critical barrier to access to health services and often leads to significant disparities in access to health. Even in countries where people living with HIV are exempt from user fees and ART is free, studies have shown that transportation and other expenses can require significant personal expenses. In West African countries like Ivory Coast, where people living with HIV are not exempt from user fees, this challenge is exacerbated.

Project details

The Global Nurse Capacity Building Program (GNCBP) is a global health initiative run by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) under the direction of the U.S. Department of Health with funds from the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). It was implemented by ICAP at the Mailman School of Public Health (ICAP) at Columbia University from 2009 to 2018. The aim of GNCBP was to advance the HIV response to fight the disease and to improve the health of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa by promoting individuals, institutions and networks, expanding, strengthening and maintaining the number of nurses and midwives. The program took a holistic approach to strengthen the training and practice of nurses and midwives through two complementary sub-projects: the Nursing Education Partnership Initiative (NEPI), which expanded the health workforce by producing new nurses and midwives; and the General Nursing (GN) project, which supported the maintenance of skilled health workers through continuous professional development (CPD) to support the expansion of HIV treatment and treatment and sustainability. Together, NEPI and GN interventions have increased the quantity and quality of nursing and midwifery personnel by addressing seven areas of healthcare workforce development: infrastructure; Curriculum; Faculty; clinical skills; Production; Advanced training; and partnership for policy and regulation.

Project details

ICAP provided intensive technical and logistical support to 192 health facilities in four regions of Ivory Coast and two tertiary care facilities in Abidjan, thereby measurably increasing the acceptance and quality of HIV prevention, care and treatment services. Growth has been achieved through a dynamic partnership with the Ministry of Health, strengthening the capacities of decentralized health management teams and multidisciplinary teams of health workers, and the direct involvement of people living with HIV in the design and delivery of health services.

Project details

Columbia University's role in implementing PEPFAR began in 2003 when it was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC )’s Global AIDS Program under the University Technical Assistance Projects (UTAP) to help develop key components nationally Support HIV programs, including treatment protocols and training. In 2004, ICAP was founded and received a new collaboration agreement from CDC under the PEPFAR framework, the Track 1.0 funding mechanism, to provide comprehensive HIV treatment and treatment in five countries: Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa and Tanzania, later programs in Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia and Nigeria were added. This initiative that Multi-Country Antiretroviral Program in Colombia (MCAP) , rapidly expanded HIV treatment and ART programs by promoting early detection of HIV infection, maintaining the health of people living with HIV, and preventing further transmission of HIV in the community. MCAP programming between 2004 and 2012 not only focused on rapidly expanding care and treatment in collaboration with host country governments, but also emphasized the full continuum of HIV-related services, further capacity building and health systems strengthening as well as the Reorganization of operations to accommodate governments and local non-governmental organizations.

Project details

The MTCT Plus Initiative, the world's first transnational HIV treatment program, aimed to demonstrate to an incredulous world that it is possible to provide care and antiretroviral (ARV) treatment in an environment of limited resources by providing prevention programs mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) as an entry point. In December 2003, the MTCT-Plus Secretariat in New York (the forerunner of ICAP, led by Wafaa El-Sadr and Elaine Abrams of ICAP) received its first grant from the new President's Emergency Program For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Four years later, Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health's MTCT-Plus initiative provided HIV treatment and treatment to nearly 17,000 people in 14 locations in nine countries. MTCT-Plus received extension grants from USAID in 2003 and 2006. By 2010, ICAP had cared for and treated more than a million people with HIV. Here you can find the MTCT-Plus and MTCT-Plus extension reports.

Project details

In September 2002, the Mailman School of Public Health (MSPH) at Columbia University (CU) signed a collaboration agreement with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for the University Technical Assistance Projects (UTAP) in support of the global HIV / AIDS program. UTAP, which was part of the ICAP, was originally designed as a one-country technical assistance program, but quickly grew to include long-term and short-term technical and administrative assistance for national HIV / AIDS responses in five countries: Mozambique, Rwanda , South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia. As the original UTAP project drew to a close and PEPFAR entered its second phase focused on sustainability, ICAP signed several follow-up agreements called UTAP-2. Four were country-specific (in Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Swaziland and Tanzania) and the fifth - UTAP-2 Atlanta - became a flexible mechanism for providing a wide range of technical and other assistance to PEPFAR countries. After UTAP-2 Atlanta began in 2009 to help the CDC conduct surveillance training more efficiently through distance learning, it grew over the next six and a half years to include 11 different projects addressing needs and gaps in the HIV response and major ones Answer research questions to inform the answer. All UTAP and UTAP-2 resources can be found here.
