Assessment of the Quality of HIV/AIDS Services in Malawi

This report assesses the quality of selected HIV/AIDS services in 20 health facilities in Southern Malawi in April and May 2010. The assessment was conducted by Family Health International (FHI) in response to a task order issued under the USAID HCI Project and in coordination with Malawi's Ministry of Health. Data collection tools were adapted from HCI tools used in earlier assessments in Uganda and Cote d’Ivoire to gather information on antiretroviral therapy (ART), the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), the HIV/AIDS continuum of care, and laboratory services. Of the 20 facilities assessed, 80% were in the public sector, including the military services, and 20% were run by faith-based organizations. Eighty-five percent were in rural areas and 15% in urban areas.
