With support from the Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) Project, health care workers at the Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital identified several factors that contributed to the low rates of chronic care enrollment and assessment for HIV-positive pregnant women. This success story describes how, after reviewing data and initiating improvement changes, both assessment for eligibility for ART treatment and enrollment into care for HIV-positive women improved.

The five-year (2010–2015) United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project is implemented by University Research Co., LLC (URC), with The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), Integrated Community Based Initiatives (ICOBI), Health Research, Inc.
