Quality Improvement

Recognizing that low retention rates limit the ability of HIV treatment programs in South Africa to successfully achieve patient outcomes and the “third 90”, ICAP conducted a situational assessment of CDC-SA partner quality improvement (QI) activities in this domain. ICAP designed and implemented a rapid scan of the QI methods, tools, systems and strategies use by Health Systems Trust (HST), the TB/HIV Care Association and the Aurum Institute. The output included a plan for ongoing experience sharing and capacity building aimed at increasing retention of patients on ART at partner-supported sites.
