SUSTAIN's Tuberculosis Care 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 13 health facilities to deliver quality tuberculosis (TB) services, including accelerating TB case detection and strengthening TB/HIV collaborative activities through the continuous quality improvement (QI) approach.

The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective interventions to improve tuberculosis care 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 quality improvement.
