The Georgetown University Center for Global Health Practice and Impact (CGHPI) serves countries to improve their population health and well-being and to safeguard against health-related threats by advancing the use of evidence and human-centered enterprise architecture on the path towards achieving equity and social justice. To achieve this mission, we catalyze the uptake, spread, and implementation of innovations; triangulate data from different sources, and tailor visualization of the information for each audience; design and implement integrated service delivery models; support communities of practice to inform policy and practice through efficient data use and horizontal and vertical collaboration; disseminate best practices and evidence globally through open source learning networks; build global, collaborative, multi-disciplinary, and interprofessional networks; undertake research that is informed by local needs; and invest in local leadership to own, provide oversight, and sustain implemented interventions.
The CGHPI has recently received an award from the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through funding from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The program will support the Kingdom of Eswatini to provide community-based, comprehensive, quality assured care, treatment and prevention HIV/TB services in Manzini and Lubombo regions to maintain HIV Epidemic control, achieve TB epidemic control and mitigate the impact of public health. The program will contribute to establishing or extending resilient, differentiated and sustainable community-based services for prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of HIV and TB, especially for the most vulnerable and hard-to-reach populations across the cascade, in ways that serve their needs; building an interface between health facilities and the community to ensure seamless service access and delivery; building the capacity of community- and faith-based organizations to implement and monitor programs that can be used to address emerging public health threats, and support the community systems strengthening initiatives of the Ministry of Health.
