Challenges and Successes of
Monitoring Health System Capacity

Transition Monitoring System: Goals
• Document capacity of health system to
meet HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and
Treatment needs pre, during and post
transition
• Increase monitoring of systems and
processes to guide program interventions
focused on health systems strengthening
beyond site level
• More uniform monitoring system across
countries
Transition Monitoring System:
Design Overview
• Capacity assessment of each Result area proposed
in Transition Plan
• Assessment scores transformed to same scale
allowing plotting on spider diagram
• Capacity assessments repeated annually at
minimum

CDC H-CAT 2
Organizational Capacity: The OCVAT
(Organizational Capacity and Viability Assessment Tool)
• Semi-quantitative: Each indicator scored on 1-5 scale,
representing stages of capacity
• Implementation: Two phases
– External Assessment – conducted by EGPAF Global
– Self-Assessment – facilitated workshop w/ staff
representing all departments/functions
• External evaluators give scores
• Participating staff give scores, median = official score
• Results presentation: Compare scores, highlight
strengths, weaknesses, discussion
• External facilitator decides final scores if no consensus
Service Provision:
Site Capacity Profile (SCP)
• Capacity Areas: ART, PMTCT, Peds, Treatment
Support, Pharmacy, Laboratory Services,
M&E/Reporting, Quality Improvement Program,
Finance
• Measures infrastructure, staffing and
management/provision of services for each capacity
area
• Coupled with existing Quality of Care measures
• Score generated per capacity area
• Implementation: Program Officers complete using
existing routine data, visit site to collect the rest OR
use as QI activity with site QI Committee
MOH Capacity Assessment
• Will be based on CDC MOH Capacity Assessment
tool
• Working Group with representation from all EGPAF
Project HEART countries will adapt ensuring
necessary country context specification and
comparability to extent possible
Community Capacity Assessment
• Focused on provision of support services
• For key support services, measures core
competencies:
– Availability, Quality, Linkage (referral process),
Utilization Barriers
– Rapid – each competency, a few key questions
• Informants:
Site Staff, CBO Leaders, Support Groups
• Countries decide which support services to
focus on (modules developed for all)
Conclusion
• Series of capacity assessments
capture health system’s capacity to
provide continuous quality HIV/AIDS
care and treatment
• Demonstrates relationship of key
components and their contribution to
the whole
