Muranga County: On 14 September 2023, we were thrilled to host the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Global HIV and TB (DGHT) Program Director Jennifer Galbraith for a Site Improvement through Monitoring System (SIMS) in Murang’á County.
Accompanied by other CDC officials, Galbraith visited Kangema Sub-county Hospital and Muriranjas Sub-county Hospital to assess the facilities and integration of HIV/TB services towards improving quality assurance processes in delivering healthcare services to clients.
During the visit, the delegation carried out a comprehensive evaluation, engaged with key project stakeholders and gathered essential data to facilitate further progress in healthcare delivery in the county. The CDC delegation offered valuable technical assistance to our project teams on key programmatic areas to achieve quality healthcare and service delivery across the project target counties.
With their experience, the team identified critical gaps and suggested feasible solutions to alleviate the challenges in the project implementation.
“We are pleased to learn of the progress the project has made in its first year of implementation”, said Dr Galbraith.
Their undertakings were vital in fostering positive outcomes and developing the standards of healthcare assistance in the respective county.
The Site Improvement Monitoring System (SIMS) is an integral part of the U.S. Government’s efforts to strengthen the quality of healthcare service delivery to people affected by HIV. The tool monitors and improves program quality at PEPFAR-supported sites that guide and support service and non-service delivery functions.
LVCT Health is supported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC in Kenya to implement the Dhibiti Project, a five-year transitional project to provide comprehensive and sustainable high-quality HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in six counties in the central region.
