ASSIST’s mission is to improve healthcare, strengthen health systems, and advance the frontier of improvement science in USAID-assisted countries.
In September 2017, USAID awarded a two-year extension to the USAID ASSIST Project. During the extension period, ASSIST is applying quality improvement methods to health systems strengthening efforts in Zika-affected countries, including the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Peru. ASSIST will also wrap up country-level assistance in Cambodia, Indonesia, Kenya, Lesotho, Tanzania, and Uganda.
ASSIST builds on the work of the USAID Health Care Improvement Project. From 2013 to 2017, ASSIST operated in 38 countries, supporting quality improvement efforts for HIV and AIDS, maternal, newborn and child health, malaria, tuberculosis, orphans and vulnerable children, and non-communicable disease services at both facility and community levels.
