The field of HIV is fortunate to have a long list of biologically efficacious medical interventions to treat HIV infection and to prevent HIV acquisition. Ending the epidemic, however, depends on using these interventions efficiently, effectively, and with high quality in diverse real world settings.

Despite the apparent alignment of the goals of implementation science and quality improvement, these two discourses remain too often unconnected.

Sessions will include:

•Quality Improvement in the Global AIDS Response: Gaps and Opportunities
•Methods for Measuring and Improving Quality in Global AIDS Programs
•Working Groups to Create Multifocal Conversation and Long-Term Collaborations
