Project Coordinator (Expiration 28/04/2019)

POSITION SUMMARY

In partnership with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ICAP will conduct Population-based HIV Impact Assessments (PHIA) in specific PEPFAR-supported countries. Each PHIA will define the status of the national HIV epidemic, guide allocation of resources based on evidence, and integrate capacity building of Lesotho stakeholders in the design, conduct, analysis, and use of PHIAs.

ICAP, in partnership with the Ministry of Health (MoH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is planning to conduct a PHIA to estimate the population-level impact of the national HIV prevention, care and treatment programs in Lesotho. In addition to providing important programmatic information to the MoHCC and relevant stakeholders, this assessment of the national HIV program is of great value to HIV researchers and public health experts around the world.
