This guide was developed to describe how to sample HIV/AIDS client or beneficiary records and classify them according to quality, with a quantifiable level of confidence, using the using lot quality assurance sampling (LQAS) method. When used as part of a routine system of data quality assurance, LQAS will improve HIV/AIDS data in source documents, allowing for improved client and beneficiary management. Since data quality issues will be identified and resolved at the source, aggregate data that are reported to national programs will be more accurate.
