In Rwanda, SC4CCM has established and trained Quality Improvement Teams (QITs) at health centers in three districts to find solutions for operationalizing new resupply procedures at the community health worker (CHW) level. These teams, from health centers in the three districts where Quality Collaboratives (QCs) have been implemented, came together for a fourth and final learning session in April.
At the event, QITs were recognized for their work implementing the QCs over the past year. QITs also shared their experiences tackling a supply chain problem in their community. In addition, the learning session helped the project to validate evaluation results to describe helpful and less helpful tools, practices and processes from the QC experience in supporting implementation of the resupply procedures. This learning will form the basis of recommendations for scale-up to be made to the Ministry of Health.
Each QIT was represented by two people, one health center (HC) staff member and one of the cell coordinators affiliated with that HC. Coaches from the district level, representatives from the MOH, and other partners involved in the community case management (CCM) were among the 96 attendees.
