Funding for Strategic Information (HVSI): $0

In 2010 the CDC will provide support to the MOH for the development and implementation of a national M&E system for HIV/AIDS. This system will seek to link all key participants of the HIV/AIDS National Response. The CDC will provide technical assistance to strengthen the M&E technical working group in order to further develop the country level HIV indicators, targets, the overall conceptual framework and system design. These efforts will also support the training of relevant health care personnel in order to increase local capacity.

CDC will provide technical assistance to increase the capacity to conduct surveillance activities and will support the development of a timely, accurate medical and management information data collection system. Both systems will interface with the National Health Information System as it evolves in the health system reform process. By linking all levels of health delivery, this system will raise the visibility of comprehensive and timely quality Information.

CDC will provide capacity building to MOH and NGO staff on the use of existing HIV/AIDS/TB/STI data. This process will seek to improve the collection, analysis, monitoring and dissemination of accurate epidemiological information. This technical assistance will contribute to increase the understanding of the magnitude of the local epidemic. It will increase the local capacity to develop reliable, timely and cost-efficient interventions. The existing data and sample from DHS 2007 and BSS survey 2008 will be analyzed in order to evaluate important variables regarding the HIV epidemic in the general and MARPS population.
