About

ICAP at Columbia University

Based at Columbia University with operations in more than 30 countries, ICAP is a leader in global public health, internationally known for tackling the world’s toughest health challenges—from HIV to tuberculosis, from malaria to maternal and child health, and the growing problem of non-communicable diseases, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. Through innovative research, collaborative technical assistance, and a focus on strengthening health systems, ICAP helps to create better, more accessible, health services to reduce the burden of illness on people and communities. A beacon for inspiring change, ICAP disseminates knowledge and best practices to inspire better population health worldwide.

 

ICAP’s pioneering approach was inspired by the experience of Dr. El-Sadr and her colleagues in the New York City community of Harlem, where HIV had been rapidly spreading and causing immeasurable suffering.

 

Originally called the International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs, ICAP quickly engaged in the global HIV response, enabling the successful scale-up of HIV care and treatment in some of the most resource-challenged countries in the world. The immediate results galvanized the global health community.
