Since 2001 CDC has operated in Zambia under the Global AIDS Program (GAP), primarily providing technical and logistical support to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other national institutions for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis programs. With the rapid scale up of PEPFAR activities over the last three years, the staff and infrastructure of CDC-Zambia have continued to grow to support these activities. As a result the amount paid to share the cost of US diplomatic facilities at the American Embassy in Zambia under Capital Security Cost Sharing (CSCS) has steadily risen. At the end of FY 2006 CDC-Zambia consisted of 38 individuals, including 11 support staff and 27 technical staff comprised of four United States Direct Hires, four contract positions, and 19 Foreign Service Nationals (FSNs). The total staffing of CDC-Zambia will be brought to 48 in FY 2007.
