This is a high-profile project in Zambia involving coordinated efforts of various United States’ global health programs, including PEPFAR’s HIV programs, USAID’s Maternal and Child Health Programs, CDC’s Ministry of Health implementation and maternal health epidemiology program, NIH’s maternal health research capacity program, Peace Corps’ community-level capacity buidling work, and the Department of Defense’s technical and logistical capacity development program.
