Development of a Centralized Collection of Community-Based Indicators for HIV Programs

Hellen, J. & Walker, D.

Information from community-based health programs is important for understanding what HIV programs are doing to test, treat, and retain in care people who are living with HIV. However, until now there has been no centralized registry of community-based indicators that would allow programs to inform HIV programming at the community level.

To address the need for standard measures of performance, MEASURE Evaluation developed an online collection, Community-Based Indicators for HIV Programs. The collection includes detailed indicator definitions, data use cases for selected indicators, additional resources, and a means to submit an indicator or make recommendations. This brief provides an overview of the collection.
