The organization: The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the U.S. Government initiative to help save the lives of those at risk from HIV/AIDS around the world. This historic commitment is the largest by any nation to combat a single disease internationally, and PEPFAR investments also help build health systems to alleviate suffering from other diseases. PEPFAR is driven by a shared responsibility among donor and partner nations and others to make smart investments to save lives.
The relationship: Since 2008, NCHADS and InSTEDD have been working together to develop a system to improve information sharing. InSTEDD is actively engaged in Cambodia in support of the National Health Information Systems Strategic plan through a PEPFAR central grant. As part of this collaboration the iLab Southeast Asia has been providing NCHADS with adaptive technical assistance to support its strategies for future development of Health Information Systems (HIS). In light of this already close relationship, NCHADS utilized the services of the iLab Southeast Asia to develop the Data Aggregation Application.
