Cost-effectiveness of Improving Services to People with HIV in Nicaragua

This pre/post intervention study evaluated the effectiveness and efficiency of an intervention to improve HIV services in seven hospital outpatient departments and two health centers in Nicaragua. The intervention included organizational changes (improving medical records, reporting patients who missed appointments, extending clinic hours, caring for children of HIV+ mothers), inputs (medication availability, providing ambulance services) and psychosocial support (promoting self-help groups and family involvement and coordinating multidisciplinary care).

Data for this study were collected from three of the seven participating facilities outside Managua.
This study is awaiting publication in a peer reviewed journal. A link to the article will be made available when published.
