Malawi; Lesotho; Zambia
General; Health Systems Strengthening
Responding effectively to this transition requires high- quality, contextually responsive, and strategic technical assistance (TA) from international HIV/AIDS program implementation organizations, such as the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF). This issue of Haba Na Haba is devoted to the topic of TA, particularly the various ways EGPAF has approached TA as an important tool in achieving its mission of ending AIDS in children. The issue covers the changing landscape in which TA is provided, definitions, approaches to the measurement of TA, EGPAF’s experiences with TA, and some of the factors needed to provide successful assistance to governments in the implementation of their own HIV programs.
