Analysis of ASSIST program activities for improving the quality of services for PMTCT, 90-90-90 targets, and malaria in Uganda
In the last year of the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project in Uganda, from October 2017 to Dec 2018, ASSIST oriented five USAID implementing partners and their coaches on quality improvement concepts and methods. With ASSIST support, partners established a collaborative to implement change packages to improve prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), 90-90-90, and malaria services in Uganda. ASSIST’s support to partners and their coaches specifically focused on supporting teams to identify gaps, testing changes and measuring improvements and addressing gaps related to the availability of commodities such as medicines, malaria test kits (including rapid diagnostic tests), and lab reagents. The report is an analysis of those activities.
