Sustaining the Impact: A Conversation on Strategic Information and HIV/AIDS (webinar recording and slides)

MEASURE Evaluation

On August 14 MEASURE Evaluation hosted a webinar focused on strategic information and HIV/AIDS and strengthening health information systems contributes to epidemic control. This includes (1) strengthening routine health information systems; (2) improved routine data quality for continuous improvement; (3) data use for program improvement; (4) the continued role for primary data--when routine data is insufficient.

BACKGROUND:

Attrition along the HIV care continuum slows gains in mitigating the South African HIV epidemic. Understanding population-level gaps in HIV identification, linkage, retention in care and viral suppression is critical to target programming.

This year’s AVAC Report takes on one of the most urgent issues facing biomedical HIV prevention today: gaps in the type and quality of data collected on prevention for HIV-negative people. Globally, the number of new HIV infections is not declining.

Timely access to antiretroviral treatment (ART) is vital to ensuring safe motherhood and reducing vertical transmission. Treatment guidance and programming has changed dramatically in recent years.

As part of its monitoring, evaluation, and reporting (MER) guidance, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) launched a set of essential indicators for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) programs.

Programmatic planning in HIV requires estimates of the distribution of new HIV infections according to identifiable characteristics of individuals.
