This article describes the application of quality improvement (QI) methods, as part of the Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS), to support governments and facility staff in five African countries in reducing maternal-to-child transmission of HIV. The PHFS intervention changed practices in health facilities and contributed to changes made in national policy that were a direct result of what was shown to be effective in improving care for mothers and their infants.
