Since the early 1990s, keeping families healthy and free from malaria and HIV.

  • With Jhpiego support, more than 178,000 Chadians learned their HIV status and more than 55,000 men received voluntary medical male circumcision services for HIV prevention. In addition, more than 55,000 individuals have been newly enrolled in pre-exposure prophylaxis against HIV.
  • From 2011 to 2021, more than 6.8 million cases of malaria were confirmed by testing and then treated using artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT), as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Also during this period, more than 559,000 insecticide-treated bed nets were distributed, more than 799,000 rapid diagnostic tests administered and more than 5 million patients received ACT at project sites. In addition, 598 providers were trained, more than 54,000 health education sessions about malaria were held and more than 694,000 people were reached with information on malaria through these sessions.
  • With Jhpiego’s support, Chad updated its policies regarding intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in pregnancy to align with WHO’s guidance, encouraging earlier and more frequent dosing of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine to prevent malaria exposure/infection during pregnancy.

Our Technical Areas in Chad

Our Work in Chad

The U.S. Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program is supporting Jhpiego to implement a four-year program to ensure that HIV prevention, diagnosis, care, treatment and support services are accessible and of highest quality for members of Chad’s national army (Armée Nationale Tchadienne, or ANT), their families and the civilian communities that are served by 14 ANT health facilities and providers. In collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the ANT, Jhpiego is strengthening ANT technical capacity in the following areas: 1) HIV prevention; 2) HIV testing services; 3) prevention of mother-to-child transmission; 4) HIV/AIDS care and treatment; 5) clinical laboratory support; 6) HIV clinical monitoring systems; and 7) military health system strengthening. Jhpiego collaborates with military leadership and personnel at all levels, working to ensure that program implementation transition to ANT by the end of the program.

Jhpiego provides technical assistance to strengthen quality improvement and leadership and management. This initiative is designed to test and evaluate evidence-based approaches for improving health care provider performance. Under this award, Jhpiego is delivering context-specific technical assistance to support quality improvement and leadership and management strengthening to reinforce national disease responses and strengthened health systems. Jhpiego implements an innovative approach for integrated supportive supervision that includes collaborative improvement, training, a web-enabled supervision checklist and supervision of supervisors to improve integrated health services for underserved populations. Jhpiego also strengthens leadership and management skills among ministry of health staff for quality improvement and improved integrated service delivery in health facilities and communities. The project is being implemented in several African countries, including Chad.
