Link profile: Guidelines for effective use of data from HIV surveillance systems, 2004
Category: Start / HIV and AIDS M&E
"This guide is part of a series of technical resources that started with the guidelines for second generation HIV surveillance published by UNAIDS and WHO in 2000. It addresses specific technical issues related to strengthening surveillance systems. This publication discusses the three major areas of data use (program planning, program monitoring and evaluation, and advocacy) and gives examples of ways data can be used effectively in these contexts. The publication concentrates on the mechanics of using data â€” not just what can be done with data, but how it can be done. For instance: How can data be packaged for different audiences? Who should be involved in dissemination? What makes a good press release? What steps are required to produce a national report? The document offers practical guidance on developing interesting and persuasive presentations and on presenting data effectively. The primary audience is HIV/AIDS program managers and surveillance professionals at the national and regional level. But other partners in HIV/AIDS prevention and care will find parts of this publication useful in preparing presentations and reports, in using media effectively and in engaging communities in reducing exposure to HIV and its impact."
