Revision of a quality development tool in HIV prevention - QIPhiv

Send by emailPDF version

QIP (Quality in Prevention) is a scientifically-based tool for quality development in the field of prevention. It has been adapted to international use in HIV prevention by the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA). Univation has been commissioned by the BZgA to update the tool and make it more user-friendly.

QIPhiv is an online tool. Project managers systematically describe their preventive actions in a documentation form. Quality of the intervention is reviewed by at least three trained reviewers based on evidence-based criteria. In the end, project managers receive concrete feedback and recommendations for improving the actions.

In order to revise the instrument, Univation carried out a literature research on effectiveness factors of HIV prevention, checked the fit of the documentation form and the assessment form, interviewed previous users of QIPhiv and organised a workshop to discuss proposals for improvement. Based on these proposals, the tool QIPhiv has been comprehensively revised.
