June 18, 2019

This Rapid Testing Continuous Quality Improvement (RTCQI) training video and competency assessment tool is available on a free virtual education platform, PEPconnect to assist ministries of health, health-care providers, and stakeholders in planning, implementing and sustaining quality assurance for point-of-care testing.

Critical for the first of UNAIDS’ 90-90-90 targets, this platform is developed by the Stronger Together public-private-partnership between Siemens Healthineers and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), providing personalised education and performance experience for healthcare personnel to increase staff competency, efficiency, productivity and healthcare outcomes. Combined scores of competency assessments and proficiency tests allow personnel to be certified by WHO, according to their certification standards.
