ICAP, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

ICAP was founded in 2004 at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. Now a global leader in HIV/AIDS services, ICAP has supported work at more than 1,200 sites across 21 countries around the world. More than one million people have received HIV services through ICAP-supported programs.   APPROACH ICAP programs are built on the belief that HIV/AIDS services should be universally available and accessible. They also recognize the rights and obligations of host countries to design and implement locally appropriate programs. With this mind, ICAP works with Ministries of Health, local governmental organizations, and in-country partners to develop sustainable HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment programs that are integrated into national HIV/AIDS control programs.
