Through its consortium partner the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), AIDSFree will work with the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Care to strengthen the quality of HIV services at all levels, with the ultimate goal of achieving viral suppression in accordance with global 90-90-90 targets. To this end, AIDSFree will provide technical assistance (TA) to address gaps in HIV service provision and key problems identified by a range of groups implementing HIV care in Zimbabwe. The TA will focus on quality improvement (QI) interventions. To enable the full implementation of the AIDSFree QI program, AIDSFree will:

  • Train health service managers and health workers in performance management and QI.
  • Train, coach, and mentor a total of 240 health care providers in 80 priority sites to continuously and systematically improve the quality of their programs at all levels.
  • Provide TA at the national level for QI and quality management program development and implementation, including support for national monitoring and evaluation to track the delivery and outcomes of AIDSFree's QI projects and trainings.
