Using Systematic Quality Improvement Processes to Improve HIV Care and Treatment in Eastern Uganda


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. Using a phased approach, ten facilities were identified to conduct quality improvement (QI) in March 2013, another 33 facilities began QI interventions in July 2014, and the remaining 23 facilities initiated QI in November 2015.
