The Strengthening Uganda's Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project is working with the Ugandan Ministry of Health (MoH) to ensure the continued provision and sustainable scale-up of quality HIV/AIDS diagnosis, treatment, and care at regional and district hospitals throughout the country. In collaboration with local partners The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) and Integrated Community Based Initiatives (ICOBI), as well with Initiatives, Inc. and Health Research, Inc., SUSTAIN is working to improve laboratory support services, introduce the chronic care model, and ensure quality care and treatment for over 26,000 Ugandans living with HIV/AIDS.

This success story describes how the SUSTAIN project has streamlined equipment and supplies procurement among laboratory stakeholders in Uganda, which has resulted in reduced waste and improved delivery of laboratory services.
