Quality & scale-up

Quality assessment and service scale-up advice

You run or fund a harm reduction service, but you are in doubt as to whether what you do has any impact. Or you need advice on how to scale-up or better integrate your interventions in the public health system. Contact Mainline for an assessment and concrete recommendations.

Mainline can assess the quality of harm reduction programmes and make concrete recommendations for improvement or scale-up. Our methods take into account challenges in resource poor settings. We work with eight central indicators to assess the programme quality. To do so, we combine various methods: field observations, direct client feedback, focus group discussions, analysis of outreach reports and data base systems, review of project documents and discussions with project staff and management. 

We form an expert opinion about the quality of services by systematically collecting data on each indicator. In addition, by mapping the (local) public health facilities and other stakeholders, we can offer advice on the integration of services in the health care system or on options for further scale-up of services. 

Our expertise can help donors in the drug and harm reduction field to find a good balance between reaching a big enough group of people (target) to have an impact on HIV prevalence, but to still provide adequate quality of services.
