Launch of the SATBHSS Project


­­HIV viral load testing program accelerates in ECSA region.

The Laboratory African Health Professions Regional Collaborative (LARC) Second Learning Session was held from 2-4 November 2016. The meeting brought together the teams of nurses and laboratory experts from six countries implementing the project including Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, Malawi and Swaziland and Tanzania.

The LARC is a partnership between the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Emory University Lillian Carter Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility; the East, Central and Southern Africa Health Community (ECSA-HC)) and the Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Federation (CNMF). The LARC initiative is funded through the US Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

The goal of the meeting was to strengthen and improve Viral Load Testing and uptake through inter-cadre capacity building, evidence based problem solving and project feedback with progress documentation.  The project puts emphasis on the need for close-working relationship between the nurses and laboratory personnel in order to avert the hitches impinging on Viral Load testing and patient follow-up.

The meeting objectives were to;

  1. Share project activities and progress made by countries implementing this project.
  2. Incorporate health systems improvement methodologies in the country projects to ensure successful outcomes
  3. Introduce a finalized project Capability Maturity Model (CMM) for benchmarking project activities.
  4. Refine the project action plans for the next six months.
