Webster PD, Deka S, Ismail A, Stern AF, Barker PM. Using a multicountry learning network to harvest and rapidly spread implementation knowledge across programs aimed to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV and improve nutrition: Perspectives and lessons learned for similar large-scale initiatives. Journal of the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (JIAPAC). 2019 Jan. doi: 10.1177/2325958219847452.
This article describes a collaborative learning network and mechanisms used to foster communication and sharing of ideas and results across six African countries in the Partnership for HIV-Free Survival. The network was instrumental in accelerating learning about improving care to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV. This experience shows the value of creating a quality improvement–driven, multicountry learning network to accelerate the pace of improving care systems.
