Project Goals

What will be improved and how will it be measured?

The Kuunika Project seeks to support government effort to ensure uninterrupted availability of drugs; improved identifications of HIV positives; improved linkage to treatment; improved retention of HIV positives on ART and suppression of viral loads; improved targeting of resources in high burden areas; improved monitoring of program performance and use of case based surveillance to inform program planning. As such the Kuunika Project has nine implementation goals:

Project Implementation

When and how will the project be implemented?

Project Implementation
With a one year Inception Phase (November, 2015 to December, 2016), the Kuunika Project is expected to run for a total period of four years from October, 2016 to September, 2020. The four year implementation period is broken into three phases.
Implementation Phase I is expected to run for 24 months and will focus on building relationships, piloting interventions and mentoring staff at all levels (facility, district, zone, and national) on using the interventions introduced. Major deliverables: A national standards registry which will serve as the backbone for interoperability between existing data systems; supervision data for DHAMIS is integrated with DHIS; interoperability layer that links data system is operational; community-level data is integrated with facility-level data for comprehensive use and reporting; improved data use for decision making by data handlers and decision makers; locally adapted training materials availed for use by the health sector, in the areas of data use and leadership; improved quality of care provided at targeted facilities; improved management of programs at facility, district and central levels.
Implementation Phase II is expected to run 18 months. At this stage the interventions introduced in the Phase I of the program will be scaled up in additional districts and facilities that are equal in number as Phase I. In this phase focus will be on scale up of basic systems such as use of biometrics and Health Data Exchange systems at additional districts and facilities.
Implementation Phase III which is the final six months of the program will be dedicated to supporting the scaled up services and evaluation of end of program outcomes. The major deliverables for this phase include a set of recommendations focused on ownership, scaling up and sustainability strategies for post-program.
