HIV & Chronic care management in Uganda

The USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project is working in Buikwe district to demonstrate an effective approach to integrating HIV care and the management of non-communicable diseases, one which in the future may be applied to long term conditions (both communicable and non- communicable) in a resource-poor setting. Applying quality improvement approaches using the chronic care model is one such approach that fosters productive interaction between patients and health care providers, leading to better outcomes. Addressing the burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases requires redesigning health systems to make them patient-centered, and the full participation of patients. This case study highlights the achievements so far seen from implementing the chronic care model in Buikwe, Eastern Uganda
