Documentation and Knowledge Management Report FY17

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project supports the deliberate harvesting of what we are learning from the implementation and evaluation of improvement work at the country level and the application of that learning in the design, implementation, and scale-up of improvement activities, with a focus on learning related to USAID’s two strategic objectives of "Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths" and "Achieving an AIDS-Free Generation."

Research and Evaluation Report FY17

The research and evaluation (R&E) unit of the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project provides technical assistance and guidance on country-led research and synthesizes learning across country- and centrally-funded activities. Topics for investigation include the validity of improvement-indicator data, sustainability and institutionalization of improvement activities, and economic analysis of improvement interventions.

WHO Patient Safety and Infection Prevention Posters (in Arabic)

These posters are part of a comprehensive effort to improve patient safety and infection prevention and control in hospitals.  These excellent WHO posters will help any hospital or health system in an Arabic-speaking country to prompt their staff on how to put on and take off personal protective equipment (gloves, gowns, masks, etc.) and improve technique and frequency of hand hygiene.
