WHAT IS QUALITY ACTION?
Quality Action is the EU-wide ‘Joint Action on Improving Quality in HIV Prevention’. The project, which brings together 25 associated and 20 collaborating partners from 26 Member States, started on 1 March 2013 and will run for three years. Quality Action contributes to the implementation of the EC Communication: ‘Combating HIV/AIDS in the European Union and neighbouring countries (2009 – 2013)’.
Quality Action aims to increase the effectiveness of HIV prevention in Europe by using practical Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Improvement (QI) tools. Quality Action develops and adapts QA/ QI tools especially for use in HIV prevention. The project will train at least 60 trainers and facilitators to support at least 80 HIV prevention programs and projects across the EU that will be applying the QA/QI tools.
The countries highlighted in green are participating in Quality Action.

Updates on Quality Action’s work
Five Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement tools are ready, available and in the process of being translated in different languages. We have trained 105 prevention experts at the European level and many more on the national level. They have in turn completed more than 80 practical applications of the tools and sent in case studies. We are continuously evaluating our work and we have encouraging preliminary results showing increased skills and confidence of partners.
This autumn we are going to develop the Charter for Quality in HIV Prevention and a policy kit, in addition to finalising the tools and case studies.
