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. (HRI), and Initiatives Inc.
The SUSTAIN project is supporting Uganda’s Ministry of Health (MOH) in strengthening systems to effectively treat HIV and AIDS. One of the project’s main focal areas is HMIS strengthening. In order to design targeted and relevant strategies for strengthening HMIS, SUSTAIN conducted an HMIS assessment at all project supported hospitals during the project start-up phase. This success story describes that experience.
