Key performance indicators for improving the last mile in antiretroviral therapy to prevent HIV drug resistance in Tanzania.

Ongoing

This transdisciplinary, human-centered project proposal will generate key performance indicators that have to be met in order to prevent HIV drug resistance (HIVDR) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. In an existing VLIR-SI the factors driving HIVDR for a specific population in Dar es Salaam, are being mapped. In this JOINT project, two partners from KU Leuven and two Tanzanian partners will join forces to use these system maps of causes leading to HIVDR, to identify and quantify key performance indicators to monitor the improvement of HIV care at the last mile, in order to prevent HIVDR. The transdisciplinary process involves stakeholder analysis, co-creation of knowledge during stakeholder workshops, and making sure they are sufficiently committed to implementation. By linking the two Tanzanian partners in this project, both will be empowered to enter into a transdisciplinary collaboration with each other and the stakeholders needed to follow-up, evaluate, and adjust the implementation plans when the thresholds of the key performance indicators are not met within the expected time frame.
