South Africa HIV Counseling and Testing (HCT) Data Use for Program Planning

CDC South Africa has amassed a huge amount of monitoring data on its HIV counseling and testing (HCT) program and assisted the South African Government (SAG) in the establishment and scale-up of a number of national HCT initiatives. In order to better maximize existing HCT information to inform PEPFAR and SAG programs, UCSF proposes to conduct an HCT strategic planning exercise using existing data for PEPFAR and South African Government.

The primary objectives of this project are the following:

1. Conduct a synthesis and analysis of all available PEPFAR partner HCT data as well as other USG data sources when appropriate. The purpose of this activity is to better describe trends in HCT support in South Africa to inform future priority and resource allocation.

2. Conduct an HCT data use exercise utilizing existing and available SAG, PEPFAR, and other partner monitoring data

3. Increase in-country capacity of CDC and NDOH South Africa staff and other relevant stakeholders in all area

Funding for Testing: HIV Testing and Counseling (HVCT): $300,000

This funding is to continue conducting a synthesis and analysis of PEPFAR and SAG HCT data for strategic planning.
