WHAT IS QUALITY ACTION?
Quality Action is the EU co-funded ‘Joint Action on Improving Quality in HIV Prevention’ involving 45 partner organisations from 26 Member States, which started on 1 March 2013.
Quality Action promotes practical tools and materials to maximise the quality of HIV prevention projects and programmes. Five practical quality improvement tools are ready, available and translated into a range of European languages. Quality Action has trained more than 400 quality improvement trainers and facilitators from 25 different European countries. More than 80 practical applications of the tools have been carried out and documented in case studies.
Quality Action has developed a policy kit which offers policy makers the rationale and concrete actions for integrating quality improvement into HIV prevention policies, strategies and action plans. The ‘Charter for Quality in HIV Prevention’ summarises quality principles, criteria and key activities to put quality improvement into practice and offer practitioners, experts, policy makers and all other stakeholders the opportunity to commit to improving their work in HIV prevention.
The Charter for Quality in HIV Prevention
Committing to key principles and criteria for improving quality
The Charter states the principles and criteria for quality in HIV prevention and calls on stakeholders to support and apply quality improvement. Not only must approaches, interventions and methods for HIV prevention be appropriate to the situation they address, they must be carried out at a high level of quality to maximise effectiveness.
This Charter was created by the representatives of Quality Action. You can support it by becoming a signatory as an organisation or as an individual.

Facts and recommendations for advocates and policy advisers
This policy kit has been developed for public health officials and advocates involved in policy and programming for HIV prevention and related public health challenges.
The kit contains various documents that illustrate how to systematically integrate quality improvement into HIV prevention policies and programmes, and it offers justifications and concrete actions for integrating it into HIV prevention policies, strategies and action plans.
