Since 1984, the DHS has collected and disseminated high-quality data that helps decision makers plan, monitor, and evaluate population, health, and nutrition programs. The DHS has conducted some 260 surveys in over 90 developing countries on infant and child mortality, fertility, maternal health, child immunization, and malnutrition levels.

The goal of the TREAT TB (Technology, Research, Education and Technical Assistance for Tuberculosis) project is to improve tuberculosis control practices and policies that will lead to improved case detection and treatment success rates and ultimately decrease TB morbidity and mortality. EnCompass developed a communications strategy that included branding, audience analysis, environmental scanning for targeted marketing of TREAT TB services, and a series of publications and e-publications.

Through USAID/ASSIST, EnCompass helped build the capacity of host-country service delivery organizations in USAID-assisted countries to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, client-centeredness, safety, accessibility, and equity of the health and family services they provide. USAID/ASSIST seeks to ensure the sustainability of these improvements by developing competencies and engaging with host-country governments at the policy level.

EnCompass designed and implemented the evaluation of the quality improvement methodology, the improvement collaboratives model. This innovative rapid improvement approach to healthcare planning and delivery is focused on monitoring, knowledge sharing, and the refinement of standards to address local operational obstacles. The evaluation team documented the collaboratives model in 14 countries as applied to maternal health, HIV/AIDS, and hospital-based pediatrics.

Recognizing that leadership is instrumental in achieving successful quality improvement (QI) initiatives, USAID’s Health Care Improvement Initiative attempted to clarify how leadership impacts QI program effectiveness. EnCompass conducted a study to identify the leadership traits and behaviors associated with effective and sustainable implementation of quality improvement in health care delivery in Honduras and Niger.
