Since 2007, the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) has provided technical support in South Africa to build quality improvement (QI) systems at the national, provincial, district, facility and community levels to improve the quality of HIV prevention, as well as care and treatment services. At the national level, HCI provides support to the National Department of Health (DOH) to incorporate QI approaches into national HIV strategies and guidelines and mentorship and coaching support to provincial, district and facility level staff. In the provinces, HCI support focuses on integrating QI into strategic and operational plans at all levels of care and increasing the capacity of facilities to provide high quality PMTCT and other HIV services. This short report describes HCI's strategies used to improve PMTCT services in South Africa.
