  • USAID – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Cote d’Ivoire continues to use innovative approaches to improve management and operations for an expanding program in a Francophone country traversing a chronic crisis while maximizing cost-efficiency.  Unlike the majority of other PEPFAR focus countries, USAID does not have a bi-lateral presence in Cote d’Ivoire.  However, in 2005 a USAID staff member joined the interagency team to strengthen support to USAID funded PEPFAR activities in country.  The USAID focal point in country receives administrative support from the West Africa Regional Program (WARP) as well as technical backstopping from USAID/Washington.
  • Marine Corps – The Marine Security Guards’ (MSG) primary mission is to provide internal security services at designated U.S. Diplomatic and Consular facilities to prevent the compromise of classified information and equipment vital to the national security of the United States of America. The secondary mission of Marine Security Guards is to provide protection for U.S. citizens and U.S. Government property located within designated U.S. Diplomatic and Consular premises during exigent circumstances, which require immediate aid or action.
  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC) – In today’s world of increasing globalization, the United States continually faces new challenges and opportunities in public health. In partnership with other parts of the US government, public health officials throughout the world, and host countries, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works to protect and promote global health in many areas.  In Cote d’Ivoire, CDC is leading the fight against HIV/AIDS through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  This unprecedented program is bringing needed resources and the latest technology to the front lines of this worldwide battle.
