Purpose: Quality HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment programs depend on the availability of individuals and organizations with appropriate M&E experience and skills as well as adequate infrastructure and resources.
Purpose: Surveillance plays a fundamental role in public health. HIV surveillance systems monitor the magnitude and trends in the prevalence of infection and risk behavior. Data from HIV surveillance systems are used for evidence-based program planning.
The success of HIV treatment programs depends upon the identification, enrollment, and retention of HIV-infected individuals, but public health officials have learned that there are numerous barriers to such success at every point in this care continuum.
Purpose:The purpose of this course is to promote data use for evidence-based HIV/AIDS program planning and improvement. By the end of this course, learners will understand concepts of data use and approaches to facilitate data use in HIV/AIDS programming.
