SUSTAIN's Nutrition Services Change Package
The SUSTAIN project provided technical assistance to 12 high-volume hospitals to integrate nutrition service delivery into HIV care in order to prevent and address malnutrition. The project’s objectives were two-fold; to increase the proportion of HIV positive clients undergoing nutritional assessments and to improve access to ready-to-use therapeutic foods for HIV positive malnourished clients.
The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective QI interventions to improve nutrition services 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, HIV care and treatment, supply chain, tuberculosis, and quality improvement.
