These sessions were aimed at enhancing multi-disciplinary CQI teams’ understanding, implementing effective strategies for achieving optimal viral load suppression in young HIV patients, emphasizing the importance of multidisciplinary teams in implementing CQI initiatives and encouraging effective collaboration among APIN supported states.

Attended by multi-disciplinary teams drawn from the five APIN/PEPFAR supported states, Benue, Plateau, Ogun, Oyo and Ondo, crucial aspects such as adherence to antiretroviral therapy, age-appropriate disclosure, ARV regimen optimization, and psycho-social support were discussed.

Participants engaged in interactive discussions, group activities and case studies, fostering practical application of the concepts.
