The PrEP Costing Guidelines provide a framework for estimating the cost of providing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which is the use of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs for preventing the acquisition of HIV infection. They are intended to provide a PrEP-specific resource for costing that could be accessible to individuals tasked with collecting, evaluating, and utilizing cost data, and who may have differing levels of familiarity with economics.
As part of its Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) guidance, the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) released Version 2.3 in September 2018, which includes revised indicators for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) programs. These indicators are intended for routine monitoring of service delivery (OVC_SERV) and HIV status (OVC_HIVSTAT) and are to be reported biannually by all global implementing partners.
The purpose of this guide is to provide a resource for clinicians on the ground who manage HIV and TB clients on a daily basis. The guide presents the tools and knowledge required to ensure that clients are offered the best quality of service, and will also enable the health facility to move towards achieving the 90-90-90 targets. This guide does not replace any national policies or guidelines, but is intended to assist with translating policy into practice.
MEASURE Evaluation works with global, national, and local partners to strengthen health information systems (HIS) in scores of countries. We have a set of prescribed results to achieve, many of which depend on successful capacity building—such as to strengthen the collection and use of routine health data, improve country-level capacity to manage HIS and conduct rigorous evaluations, and address health information gaps and challenges.
IndiKit aims to make monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of relief and development interventions easier and better - by helping humanitarian and development workers to use well-formulated project indicators and to correctly collect and analyse the data required for each indicator.

The MEASURE Evaluation Phase IV project is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded cooperative agreement headquartered at the Carolina Population Center of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). MEASURE Evaluation seeks to strengthen monitoring and evaluation functions and systems and build individual, organizational and national capacity to assess the effectiveness of public health interventions.
Webinar: Information Technology Tools to Support the Scale Up of Viral Load Testing and Early Infant Diagnosis
DATE: Tuesday, July 18th, 2017
TIME: 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (EDT)
WHERE: Adobe Connect
Tracking data across multiple health care sites, labs, and machines is one of the greatest challenges in scaling up viral load (VL) testing and early infant diagnosis (EID). Innovations in information technology can help to decrease the burden of data collection, improve the accuracy of the data collected, and enhance the timeliness of data use in order to identify and address issues quickly and efficiently.
Across all international organizations, data is hard to find, rarely coordinated, search tools are limited in their range, and resources are often focused on single issues. Users have not had a platform from which to browse the full repository of data that exists. The aim of GVADATA is to radically transform this.
