This document is a product of efforts by two consultant Medical Epidemiologists with training in paediatrics; Ezekiel Mupere MBChB, M.Med (Paediatrics), PhD (Epidemiologist) and Eric Wobudeya MBChB, M.Med (Paediatrics), MSc. (Epidemiology). The consultants were facilitated by staff from three stakeholders: Regional Centre for Quality of Care (RCQHC), AIDS Control Program (ACP), and Health Communication Partnership (HCP). We are grateful to the consultants, all staff (Eva Magambo, Ruth Musekura, Kimberly Burns Case, and Robert Nangai from HCP; Dr. Peter Elyanu from ACP; and Dr. Daniel Tumwine, Dr. Henry Barigye, Dr. Micheal Mawanda, and Mr. Taasi Geoffrey from RCQHC), and stakeholders who participated in a series of consultative meetings to conceptualize and operationalize the framework, tools, indicators, and database.

In Uganda it is estimated that 130,000 children under 14 years are living with HIV with 42,000 children in immediate need of life saving antiretroviral drug treatment. However, only 17,000 of these (41%) are receiving this essential intervention. Tackling the paediatric HIV/AIDS pandemic is possible where resources are available, services are accessible, and efforts coordinated.
The Regional Centre for Quality of Health Care (RCQHC) is affiliated to Makerere University School of Public Health. RCQHC’s mission is to provide leadership in building regional capacity to improve the quality of health care in Africa by promoting evidence-based better practices.
The Regional Centre for Quality of Health Care (RCQHC) in partnership with the Health Communication Partnership (HCP) is currently implementing a 2-year initiative to support the MOH/AIDS Control Program (ACP) to scale up paediatric HIV services in Uganda. The program aims to strengthen the capacity of healthcare providers in Uganda to offer quality paediatric HIV/AIDS services (care, treatment and support). This RCQHC/HCP/ACP project will train national and regional trainers for paediatric HIV/AIDS services and also offer them support supervision as they train frontline healthcare providers.
The purpose of this Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system is to establish a unified and coherent tracking of the trainings and supervision provided to the trainer of trainers (TOT), and the trainings provided to the frontline health care workers (HCW). The data collected through this framework will be used for tracking and reporting training outputs to the ACP at the MOH and other stakeholders in a timely manner, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the project’s trainings, and feedback review to all stakeholders.
