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.
Aim: To establish an overview of school-based interventions carried out to support the health and well-being of vulnerable children in Zimbabwe and similar socio-economic contexts in sub-Saharan Africa.
Zimbabwe aims to increase circumcision coverage to 80% among 13- to 29-year-olds. However, implementation data suggest that high coverage among men ages 20 and older may not be achievable without efforts specifically targeted to these men, incurring additional costs per circumcision.
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.
