About this course

Most organisations face capacity challenges due to a number of reasons – one of which includes limited resources, both human and financial. As a consequence, HIV programme data isn’t always used for decision-making or to improve programmes, but
rather to simply satisfy reporting requirements. M&E capacity development is usually a priority, however more often than not, programme managers and senior programme staff are too busy implementing programmes and responding to other
pressing programme needs.

This course targets HIV Programme Managers and other staff on the use of routine and periodic HIV data for programme improvement. This training covers the major indicators of HIV programmes, including the Top Ten indicators used by major
donors (The Global Fund, PEPFAR, UNAIDS, etc) for the following service delivery areas:

  • HIV Prevention
  • HIV Treatment Care and Support
  • Impact Mitigation
  • Most-At-Risk Populations

The objectives of the course are that HIV and AIDS programme
managers at implementation level are able to critically analyse
and use the data generated from their programmes for purposes
of overall service delivery improvement.

Course Content

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the basic epidemiology of HIV and AIDS
