The USAID Strengthening the Care Continuum project works to achieve HIV epidemic control in the Western Region of Ghana, which has the highest burden of HIV in the country. The project works with the Government of Ghana to implement strategies including index testing, contact tracing, targeted outreach testing services, and use of case managers to identify, link, and help clients adhere to antiretroviral therapy (ART), and supports viral load testing.

Now in its fifth year, the Care Continuum project is also deploying continuous quality improvement interventions and training health care workers to increase the number of people linked to and retained on treatment.

The Care Continuum team created a series of single-slide stories (SSS) to tell three recent stories: an increase in case identification by district; linkage to treatment driven by quality improvement interventions; and an increase in people receiving ART. As the name suggests, SSS tell a data-driven story in a single slide, visually representing the project’s progress in a particular area.

These SSS use robust data to showcase our successes. They are a quick way to see what we’re achieving, particularly when it comes to getting more people on treatment, and keeping them on treatment to sustain viral suppression,” said Henry Nagai, the project’s chief of party.
