Successful Support for Better HIV Data

Successful Support for Better HIV DataA major objective of MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), has been to improve health information systems, and the data they contain, to contribute to control of the HIV epidemic in the countries where the project works.

PEPFAR is focused on data-driven decision making to ensure that programs addressing the epidemic are deployed where they are most needed and that they have measurable impact. The Data for Accountability, Transparency and Impact (DATIM) software system was developed to organize HIV data from monitoring, evaluation, and reporting (MER) of programs; Site Improvement through Monitoring System (SIMS) assessments; Evaluation Standards of Practice; Surveys, Surveillance, Research, and Evaluations (SRE) activities; and expenditure analyses.

MEASURE Evaluation has advanced this crucial PEPFAR aim in two primary ways: (1) supporting DATIM implementation, management, and capacity building; and (2) increasing the capacity of country health information systems (HIS) and their enabling environments (governance, management, skills, etc.) at global, regional, and country levels, especially in PEPFAR countries.
