General Nursing

The general nursing program at ICAP increased nursing and midwifery capacity to provide HIV and primary care services. ICAP collaborated with ministries of health and other stakeholders including nursing councils and training institutions with support from PEPFAR through HRSA and the CDC.

ICAP supported programs in Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, and Cote d’Ivoire to develop interventions and strategies based on demonstrated needs.
