Cardno, a proven leader in partnerships and multi-stakeholder collaborations, has implemented the Public-Private Partnerships in PEPFAR Countries Project (P4) since 2009. Under P4, Cardno has primary responsibility for managing, accounting for, and disbursing resources (both public and private) provide through partnerships with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Center for Global Health (CGH)/Division of Global HIV/AIDS Tuberculosis (DGHT) and the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy (S/GAC). P4 has also assisted participating PEPFAR countries to maintain and expand current PPPs, as well as support the identification of private sector partners that may enhance country ownership and shared responsibility. P4 has supported the reporting and evaluation of specific PPPs to assess impact and share lessons learned
The P4 Project brings greater innovation, impact and sustainability to PEPFAR’s public-private partnerships (PPP) portfolio. Cardno provides support to CDC by strengthening and integrating the brokering process throughout the partnership cycles of PEPFAR PPPs. P4 Project manages partnerships in the following technical areas: health information systems, prevention, care and treatment, mobile health, evaluation surveys, demand creation, and capacity building that aim to achieve PEPFAR’s goals of epidemic control (90-90-90 targets), sustainability, and transparency. Cardno’s approach ensures that private sector investment and engagement under partnerships are maximized, while assessing their impact and contributions. Under the management and oversight of the P4 Project, PPPs have achieved the following impact under 19 partnerships that have engaged over 80 partners in over 15 countries.
