File Type: PDF | File Size: 768.7 KB

Originally designed for acute care, health systems in low-income countries must adapt to meet the long term needs of people with HIV. The USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) is assisting the Ministry of Health (MOH) of Uganda in developing and piloting an approach, using the WHO-endorsed Chronic Care Model (CCM), to achieve sustainable patient-centered systems for chronic HIV/AIDS care. This short report describes the results of a collaborative improvement demonstration intervention launched in 2011 in Buikwe district in which HCI worked with district and regional officials along with managers, providers, and patients to identify and address gaps in chronic care.
