Central American Hospitals Recognized for Improving HIV/AIDS Services Print E-mail

In coordination with the respective Ministry of Health or Social Security Institute, the Capacity Project facilitated results ceremonies during June and July in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama and Belize to recognize the work of hospitals and health centers in strengthening HIV/AIDS services.

Through the Project’s performance improvement approach, multidisciplinary care teams at the health facilities assessed the quality of HIV/AIDS service provision based on performance standards, and developed and implemented action plans to address identified gaps. As a result, hospitals showed marked improvement in performance, many averaging a 30% increase from baseline, with stellar cases showing increments of almost 60%.

These results ceremonies showcased the Project’s activities in these countries, in which the Project worked to improve the capacity of the region’s health workforce to deliver comprehensive HIV/AIDS treatment and care, including TB coinfection.
