SUSTAIN's Monitoring and Evaluation 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 SUSTAIN project provided technical assistance to 12 MoH hospitals to implement interventions aimed at improving the quality, accuracy, completeness and utilization of data at regional referral hospitals. Specifically, QI teams at each of the 12 hospitals were supported to:

  1. increase the accuracy of submitted facility reports,
  2. increase the completeness of facility reports submitted to MoH via the District Health Information System 2 (DHIS2), and
  3. improve data utilization through facility-level performance reviews.

The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective QI interventions to improve monitoring and evaluation activities 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, adolescent friendly health services, voluntary medical male circumcision, HIV care and treatment, nutrition, supply chain, tuberculosis, and quality improvement.
