Publication alert: Evaluation of an innovative new approach in Mozambique and Côte d’Ivoire

Jul 5, 2016

A recent article published in the journal JAIDS takes a look at an innovative research study carried out in three African countries – two of them in countries where HAI works.  HAI’s Dr. Sarah Gimbel and Dr. Alison Rustagi were the lead authors on this evaluation, which shows the impact of a Systems Analysis and Improvement Approach, which consists of a set of tools borrowed from the engineering field to improve HIV programs in Mozambique, Côte d’Ivoire, and Kenya.

“This is a very exciting study as it is the first to apply the Consolidated Framework of Implementation Research (CFIR) to the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV services in low and middle income countries,” Dr. Gimbel said. “We expect that use of the CFIR will increase in these settings with the most need, as it is a helpful and efficient framework to identify core and adaptable components of complex interventions.”

The study was supported and implemented by HAI’s programs in Mozambique and Côte d’Ivoire, along with partners in Kenya.  Read more about HAI’s research on our Publications page.
