U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

​The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, functions as the U.S. health protection agency and works to protect lives from health and safety threats, effectively increasing global health security.

Cardno operates in coordination with CDC and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to serve as the Global Secretariat for the Public-Private Partnerships in PEPFAR Countries Project (P4).

Managing the first phase (2009-2015) and now the second phase (2015-2020) of P4, Cardno collaborates with CDC and the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator to leverage the resources of the U.S. Government and private sector partners to meet the PEPFAR goals of improved health outcomes, sustainability, and country ownership.

Public-private partnerships maximize efforts through jointly-defined objectives, collaborative program design, and coordinated implementation, which subsequently enhance local and international capacity to deliver quality health services and disease prevention programs. With a regional focus in Sub-Saharan Africa and other PEPFAR-supported countries such as Cambodia, Cardno manages a portfolio of public-private partnerships that combat the global HIV/AIDS epidemic.
