The IMAI-IMCI Alliance NGO provides an operational base in both the U.S. and France for this growing network. The strength of the Alliance lies in the global experience of its institutions and individual members in supporting the implementation of these tools and in so doing contributing significantly to the technical support requirements of HIV testing and counseling; HIV care and ART; PMTCT integrated within maternal and child services; other prevention with positives and for negatives; and special primary health care for IDU, MSM, sex workers and adolescents; and emergency care and critical care services.

The IMAI-IMCI Alliance provides a forum for south-to-south collaboration between countries implementing IMAI-IMCI, implementation support in the development of model districts and for on-going technical support for the scale up of HIV/AIDS delivery services and quality improvement.

Each member institution brings a wealth of experience in providing technical support through the adaptation process, training and quality implementation in the district system.
