SUSTAIN's HIV Care and Treatment Change Package

Since 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has been working with Uganda’s Ministry of Health (MoH) to improve HIV and AIDS service delivery at select health facilities through the Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project.

The USAID/SUSTAIN project has provided technical, coordination and operational support to 12 hospitals in Uganda to deliver high quality HIV care and antiretroviral therapy (ART) services for both adults and children. QI teams worked to identify and address gaps in care in: a) ART initiation for eligible HIV+ clients, b) retention of HIV+ clients on ART for more than 12 months, and c) access to viral load monitoring among patients on ART.

The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective QI interventions to improve HIV and AIDS service delivery in SUSTAIN-supported hospitals in Uganda.

This change package is part of a series of quality improvement change packages developed by the SUSTAIN project based on their work in Uganda. Other technical areas include: prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, laboratory, monitoring and evaluation, adolescent friendly health services, voluntary medical male circumcision, nutrition, supply chain, tuberculosis, and quality improvement.
