Purpose of the Award           The overarching goal of this award is to build capacity
                               within the national laboratory network to deliver quality
                               laboratory diagnostics of HIV/AIDS related
                               opportunistic infections, particularly TB. The Pasteur
                               Institute Cote d’Ivoire will collaborate with various sub-
                               departments and central laboratories of the Ministry of
                              Health and the CDC-Retro-CI laboratory to improve
                              coordination and implementation of laboratory activities
