In Northern Uganda, the USAID ASSIST Project has supported Ministry of Health (MOH) sites to increase the percentage of people living with HIV (PLHIV) on antiretroviral therapy receiving viral load monitoring. As a result, the activity has reached 73% of PLHIV on treatment and targeted for viral load testing between July and December 2015, with 90.2% of the valid results showing an improvement in viral suppression rates, from 88.4% (August 2015) to 92.4% (December 2015).

This was achieved through training sessions for 467 health workers from 50 health facilities in 15 districts on the new MOH viral load policy guidelines and monthly quality improvement support.
