Continuous Quality Improvement through Collaboratives in the Caribbean

Since 2013, I-TECH has led quality improvement (QI) collaboratives in the Caribbean region, enabling multidisciplinary teams based at health facilities to work together toward a common goal of improving care and treatment for patients with HIV.

Facility-based QI teams meet as a collective for periodic learning sessions where they are taught QI methods, share their results, and learn strategies from other teams. Between learning sessions, teams receive coaching from local, regional and international experts, participate in webinars, implement Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles, and track related data. Data monitoring and utilization underpin all QI activities.
