Photographed in the southeastern African country of Malawi, this scene depicts Malawi health workers attending their graduation ceremony that was held in May, 2014. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), is helping to train healthcare workers in developing countries, in order to support high quality, sustainable HIV/AIDS services essential for achieving a worldwide AIDS-free generation.
Additional Information:
“Health worker shortages are common in most countries with a high HIV/AIDS burden. A health workforce that delivers high quality HIV/AIDS services to those in need is essential to achieving an AIDS-free generation, a goal supported by PEPFAR, through its resources to help partner countries increase the quantity, and build the capacity of the health care workforce through a data-driven approach that addresses bottlenecks to scaling-up HIV services and ensures sustainability of PEPFAR programs and services. CDC works in close collaboration with the governments of PEPFAR-supported countries to enhance the sustainability of these activities.”
