The ICAP (International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs) Nurse Capacity Initiative (INCI) is an innovative, multi-country program designed to build models that:

• Empower nurses to provide the HIV-related care that they are positioned to deliver;
• Increase the numbers of nurses providing high-quality HIV-related services;
• Build and strengthen the public health nursing workforce through a focus on HIV service delivery;
• Advocate for broadened scopes of practice & updated nusing policies;
• Facilitate and improve HIV-related pre-service and in-service nurse training;
• Engage nurses and stakeholders in a Pan-African network to heighten visibility of these issues;
• Train nurse leaders.

The INCI is a collaboration of ICAP at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, the U.S. government’s Health Resources and Services Administration, South Africa’s University of Fort Hare School of Health Sciences, Columbia University School of Nursing, and the International Council of Nursing.
