  • Description:
    The Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) periodically conducts several different supervisory and survey activities designed to help identify the gaps and successes of program implementation at all sub-national levels. The MOHSS HIV Drug Resistance Surveillance 2014 Early Warning Indicator (EWI) Report identified several quality gaps of ART services. Of major concern were the gaps in Viral Load (VL) measurement and the suppression rates after treatment initiation. Supply chain interruptions were also identified in several sites as well as gaps in retention in care and treatment adherence. Many of these concerns were also partly identified during the MOHSS Technical Supervisory Support Visits (TSSV) 2013 Report. Furthermore consultations conducted during the 2013 National Strategic Framework for HIV/AIDS response (NSF) mid-term review as well as the development of the National ART Operational Plan 2014/15- 2016/17 identified similar concerns with quality gaps in some ART facilities. In order to develop a deeper understanding of the quality of ART services in several of Namibia’s ART facilities, the MOHSS in collaboration with the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted the ART Service Quality Assessments (SQA) in 14 facilities from 7 high HIV burden regions of Namibia during the month of December 2014.The
