Summary 

As part of the Integrated Infectious Disease Capacity-Building Evaluation, mid-level practitioners (MLPs) in 36 Ugandan public health facilities received training to improve clinical competence in addressing infectious diseases. On-Site Support (OSS) was provided with the goal of improving patient outcomes and overall facility performance. These capacity-building interventions were evaluated through the analysis of data from patient visits. The raw (anonymous) data, available from Accordia Global Health Foundation, included symptoms, clinical measurements, lab tests, diagnoses, treatments, and referrals for over one million outpatient visits. The patient visit data were also combined with data from various Ministry of Health registers, and those analysis files are available directly from the GHDx.
