HIV Coverage, Quality, and Impact Network
The HIV Coverage, Quality, and Impact Network is a multi-country learning network designed to accelerate the implementation of high-quality differentiated service delivery for HIV in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
CQUIN’s goal is to increase the number of people living with HIV initiating and sustaining highly effective HIV treatment with sustained viral suppression. ICAP aims to catalyze the delivery of high quality differentiated service at scale by supporting a network of countries in sub-Saharan Africa at various stages of implementing differentiated services, enabling experience sharing, peer-to-peer learning, and collaborative problem solving.
Differentiated service delivery is a way to enable health systems to manage the growing number of individuals receiving HIV treatment by tailoring services for different patient groups. Ideally, the strategy will improve both efficiency and quality by down-referring stable patients, decompressing health facilities, moving treatment closer to communities, using diverse health cadres and lay staff, and enhancing patient satisfaction and retention.
