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 four years, the staff

and infrastructure of CDC-Zambia have continued to grow to support these activities. Zambia is now a post

where construction of the new embassy compound (NEC) is scheduled to begin in April of 2008. CDC will

be allocated six desks in the NEC. This space will allow for the CDC Director and select administrative staff

to collaborate with State Department and USAID staff as needed in a co-located area. The majority of the

53 CDC staff will be in offices on host government property, the Capital Security Cost Sharing (CSCS) costs

have been adjusted accordingly.
