Cardno’s P4 is funded by the Centers for Disease for Control and Prevention (CDC) to support its management and scale up of public-private partnerships (PPP) under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). 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 (OGAC) 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.
P4 helps countries maintain and expand current partnerships, and assists in identifying private sector partners that enhance country ownership and shared responsibility. P4 supports the evaluation of private sector engagement to assess the impact and contribution of PPPs to PEPFAR’s HIV/AIDS care, treatment, and prevention goals and shares lessons learned.
The PPPs contribute to PEPFAR’s goal of an AIDS-free generation through innovative interventions in the areas of strategic health information, combination prevention, treatment, and prevention of mother-to-child transmission while supporting its open data, transparency and accountability agendas.
