Côte d’Ivoire

Health Alliance International has worked in partnership with Côte d’Ivoire’s Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene (MSHP) since 1992.

A french-speaking, West African nation with a population of nearly 25 million people, Côte d’Ivoire boasted the 12th largest economy in Africa in 2019, but the 7th lowest life expectancy in the world.

Despite recent economic growth and stability, Côte d’Ivoire’s not-too-distant history of civil and ethnic conflicts (1999, 2002-2007, 2010-2011) severely undermined the capacity and reach of the Ivorian health system, with enduring consequences. In Northern Côte d’Ivoire, in particular, this led to the destruction of health facilities and schools, disruption of services, and displacement of health workers.

HAI supports more than 330 community counselors and 90+ viral load champions who help link people living with HIV to and between health services.

2.1 Million

Ivoirians have been screened for HIV at clinics and in communities supported by HAI programs.

 

 

9 out of 10

people living with HIV who initiated treatment at an HAI-supported facility are active in care one year later.

Since 2007, HAI has worked to strengthen and integrate HIV/AIDS services into Côte d’Ivoire’s public sector health system. 

Thanks to the effectiveness of HAI’s public sector partnership model, what started as supportive supervision at 10 public clinics in the Northern town of Bouaké has grown to a comprehensive, clinical systems-strengthening approach at over 300 health facilities across 6 regions under Project LINKS.  

Along with working to expand and integrate HIV/AIDS services within the public sector, HAI also partners with the MSHP to test the efficacy of health services and identify ways to improve Côte d’Ivoire’s health delivery system. Projects have included national health service assessments; service delivery intervention studies; and operations research workshops conducted in collaboration with the Ivorian National Public Health Institute.
