The month of October 2015 marked the first month in the EFMC/IHVNACTION Plus Up project, Year 4. To assess the operations of the organization, review policies, develop work plans for FY16 and re-strategize to achieve better outcomes, EFMC planned and held a four day staff retreat. In October 2015, EFMC also held strategic meetings with various stakeholders, visited facilities for Needs assessment and completed the RADET III exercise. With plans to upgrade several PHCs to comprehensive ART sites, EFMC, in conjunction with IHVN, FACA and FASCP, embarked on Needs assessment visits to selected facilities in AMAC and Bwari Area Councils. EFMC staff also conducted Supportive Supervisory/Quality Improvement visits to supported facilities to ensure that program activities are carried out according to guidelines and at the right quality.
