morbidity and mortality has dropped dramatically
due to advances in HIV/AIDS treatment. But
reductions are uneven across HIV-infected
populations due to unequal access to care
and variable quality of services provided.
Quality management seeks to enhance the
quality of HIV care provided and increase
access to services. They do so by measuring
how health and social services meet established
professional standards and user expectations.
HIV/AIDS Bureau's (HAB's)quality initiatives,
which focus on the service delivery system
at various levels are designed to help grantees
implement quality management programs that
target clinical, administrative, and supportive
is committed to improving the quality of
care and services and ultimately the quality
of life for people living with HIV and AIDS.
This commitment is made evident by the variety
and depth of efforts undertaken by HAB to
address the quality of care, treatment and
training across all programs administered
by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.
