About half of all people in need of treatment for HIV do not receive it, and more than 2 million people are newly infected each year. For patients receiving care and treatment, the struggle to consistently deliver high quality care, to each patient still exists for many providers. To continue expanding quality treatment and prevention, it is imperative to strengthen implementation of programs using quality improvement approaches. RCQHC HIV/AIDS program area hopes to see the scale up of best practices about QI and M&E for HIV prevention services for clinicians, HIV care facilities, community-based HIV prevention programs, health departments, and HIV prevention planning groups.
Our activities aimed at this include
Conducting quality improvement activities for HIV/AIDS in collaboration with the Ministries of Health of Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi and Uganda.
Supporting countries to identify innovative solutions to HIV/AIDS service delivery bottlenecks and bring these solutions to scale.
Providing technical capacity to HIV/AIDS service providers and policy makers to facilitate the translation of strategic and operational quality priorities into effective improvement actions.
Identifying quality gaps in HIV/AIDS service provision and building capacity to solve these gaps
