ICAP at Columbia University

Something About Company

A global health leader since 2003, ICAP was founded at Columbia University with one overarching goal: to improve the health of families and communities.

Together with our partners—ministries of health, large multilaterals, health care providers, and patients—we strive for a world where health is available to all. Our roots are in comprehensive, family-focused HIV services and high-performing health system strengthening initiatives that provide quality and affordable health care. Today, we tackle the world’s most pressing health threats and implement sustainable solutions to meet the health needs of individuals, communities and nations.

Through pioneering research and thought leadership, we promote innovative, effective, and ethical programs. And by enhancing health information systems, improving quality, and developing human resources for health, we build capacity and efficiency in the world’s most challenging, resource-limited settings. To date, we have addressed major public health challenges and the needs of local health systems through 6,000 sites across 30 countries.

Today, an estimated 38.6 million people worldwide are infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Each year, an additional four million people, including 700,000 children, are newly infected. In developing countries hardest hit by the disease, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, HIV/AIDS has drastically reduced adult life expectancy and orphaned 15 million children.

In recognition of this vast human suffering, governments and international organizations launched various initiatives to provide life-saving antiretroviral treatment (ART) to HIV-infected people. Despite these commitments and the progress that has been made, both treatment and prevention efforts have fallen well short of goals. In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 80 percent of HIV-infected people, including 1.9 million children, who need ART are not receiving it. New infections also continue to occur at staggering rates.
