PEPFAR and HIVQUAL consider an HIV quality improvement projects as the main vehicles by which a facility makes incremental process improvements to its various care elements and changes its processes and systems of care[1]. Quality Improvement (QI) is the means by which activities are routinely evaluated to check whether services offered by the multidisciplinary team are following established guidelines and standard operating procedures (SOPs). QI should be a routine, ongoing part of the normal functioning of health facilities. Therefore, QI should incorporate procedures in which all staff at all levels — not just supervisors — are involved[2]. A good CQI program offer  a range of benefits including  a) Improved patient health outcomes , b) Improved efficiency of managerial and clinical processes by  reducing  waste and costs associated with system failures and redundancy, C) Avoided costs associated with process failures, errors, and poor outcomes by Streamlining  reliable processes which are less expensive to maintain, D) Proactive processes that recognize and solve problems before they occur ensure that systems of care are reliable and predictable and  E) Improved communication with resources that are internal and external to an organization, such as, funders, civic and community organizations.
