Background

Deloitte is implementing a program to strengthen regional, national, and sub-national institutional capacities to sustainably combat HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

The program intends to strengthen the capabilities of host country governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to plan, manage, and monitor sustainable programs and systems to respond to HIV, TB, and other diseases and conditions of public health concern.
