HIV Coverage, Quality and Impact Network
The HIV Coverage, Quality and Impact Network (CQUIN) is a multi-country learning network designed to accelerate the implementation of high-quality differentiated care for HIV in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
CQUIN’s goal is to increase the number of people living with HIV initiating and sustaining highly effective HIV treatment with sustained viral suppression. ICAP aims to catalyze the delivery of high quality differentiated care at scale by supporting a network of countries in Sub-Saharan Africa at various stages of implementing differentiated care services, enabling experience sharing, peer-to-peer learning, and collaborative problem solving.
Differentiated care is a way to enable health systems to manage the growing number of individuals receiving HIV treatment by tailoring services for different patient groups. Ideally, the strategy will improve both efficiency and quality by down-referring stable patients, decompressing health facilities, moving treatment closer to communities, using diverse health cadres and lay staff, and enhancing patient satisfaction and retention.
