To enhance the capacity of the Ugandan Ministry of Health, the Strengthening Uganda's Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally Project (SUSTAIN), funded by the United States Agency for International Development, is supporting regional referral and general hospitals to prepare and submit accurate and timely order to the National Medical Store to ensure continued access to HIV-related medical commodities available through the national system. This success story details the methods introduced by the SUSTAIN team to improve the ordering system used by the hospitals.
