The strides made in Malawi's Chiradzulu District demonstrate improved data use at the facility level and that using performance charts can go a long way in improving program performance. As a result of the success in Chiradzulu, the initiative has been scaled up in all of the DHSS program areas.

The patient tracing system improved the delivery of HIV services in MSH-supported facilities in Malawi's Blantyre District. More than 50% of patients who had missed an appointment were brought back to care. Some patients who had self- transferred out to other facilities were identi ed and their outcomes recorded in the register.

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) has been assisting Malawi since 2003 to strengthen health care systems, increase disease preven- tion education, reduce maternal and childhood mortality rates, and expand access to quality HIV/AIDS services.

To improve quality of HIV care in targeted districts, STAR-E scaled up the Ministery of Health quality improvement framework in March 2013. STAR-E targeted 66 facilities, including high volume and smaller facilities that were underperforming on key indicators.

Key populations, including sex workers, prisoners, and men who have sex with men (MSM), are disproportionately infected with and affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2014, HIV prevalence among sex workers globally was 12 times the prevalence of the mainstream population. Sex workers and other key and priority populations contribute substantially to new HIV infections in Uganda.

Uganda ranks among the top 20 countries in the world with the highest number of TB/HIV co-infection cases and the highest rate of TB cases among people living with HIV(PLHIV). In 2015, HIV prevalence was estimated at 7.1%, and approximately 45% of TB patients were co-infected with HIV.

Challenge TB was implemented in Ethiopia as part of Management Sciences for Health’s (MSH’s) Innovation Challenge Fund (INCH)2 initiative designed to encourage innovative interventions across MSH supported projects. MSH used the ExpandNet Framework3 to scale up the innovation.

The Integrated Health Project Plus (IHPplus) was implemented in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from June 2015 to June 2018 by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and Overseas Strategic Consulting, Ltd. (OSC), under a subcontract via Pathfinder/Evidence to Action.

Unique identification is essential to progress toward meeting PEPFAR’s 95-95-95 goal. For people living with HIV, better program management means more timely testing and promotes continuity of service for lifesaving sustained ART. Providers can assess treatment regimens and their effectiveness toward achieving viral suppression.

The TRACK TB project’s goal was to increase the case detection rate (CDR) and the treatment success rate (TSR) in focus areas to meet national targets for reducing the burden of TB, MDR-TB, and TB/HIV.

Despite making good progress toward digitizing client level data, the Government of Tanzania is still working to meet the latest global guidelines for HIV/AIDS programs. One major reason is that the country’s data collection and HIS do not efficiently deliver the quality information required for effective monitoring and planning.

The Technical Support Services Project (TSSP) worked with the Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, the Elderly, and Children (MoHCDGEC) to support and strengthen the Star Rating Assessment (SRA) Tool system. The project integrated HIV/AIDS indicators into the tool to create more comprehensive assessments of the country’s health care facilities. 

The dual burden of TB and HIV infection has prompted global attention as well as WHO policies and guidelines.

Ethiopia is among high TB-HIV burden countries and uptake of live-saving treatment among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) has remained low at the national level.

The Tanzania Technical Support Services Project (TSSP) supports the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children (MoHCDGEC) and public health institutions in improving the health system to achieve and sustain HIV epidemic control in Tanzania.

In support of the government of Angola's efforts to maintain the country’s relatively low HIV prevalence, MSH, under USAID Angola’s Health For All (HFA) Project (2017–2019) helped to establish a sustainable model for providing high-quality HIV and AIDS services through the prevention, care, and treatment continuum.To accelerate early HIV diagnosis and linkage to care, HFA support

To accelerate progress in early diagnosis and linkage to treatment of people living with HIV, the Health For All (HFA) Project in Angola trained and deployed 16 patient assistant facilitators (PAFs) across seven health facilities in Luanda.In support of the Government of Angola’s (GoA) strategic plan to accelerate early diagnosis of HIV, HFA supported initiatives to ensure that people living

Until recently, TB and HIV have been treated separately under Angola’s National TB Control Program (NCTB) and the National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS (INLS).In support of TB/HIV service integration, the Health for All (HFA) project provided coordination and advocacy at the national level to align NCTB and INLS goals, infrastructural support to facilities to ensure that they have th

The Health For All (HFA) Project worked in partnership with the Government of Angola to integrate provider-initiated HIV testing services into family planning services in health facilities. To support the integration of FP and HIV services, HFA developed standard operating procedures (SOPs) based on each clinical intervention, job aids, and checklists and provided training to health prov

The Health for All (HFA) Project (April 2017– September 2019) was funded by USAID, led by Population Services International, and implemented in partnership with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and local partners Rede de Mulheres Angolanas and the MENTOR Initiative. MSH led implementation of the project’s work on HIV and AIDS at seven health facilities selected by the US Presi

HFA works in support of the Government of Angola’s strategic plan to accelerate early HIV diagnosis and linkage to care through implementation of the Busca Activa Consentida Através do Caso Indice (BACCI) or index case testing and tracing (ICTT).
