SUSTAIN's Quality Improvement 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 supported 17 health facilities to institutionalize practices of continuously improving the quality of health services they offer through embracing the culture of continuous quality improvement (CQI). At the national level, SUSTAIN has supported the Ministry of Health to launch and implement the National Quality Improvement Framework and Strategic Plan, and the functionality of quality improvement (QI) structures at both national and sub-national levels.

The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective QI interventions to institutionalize continuous quality improvement approaches 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, nutrition, supply chain, and tuberculosis.
