Stigma, geography, size estimation, and gender

Jul 26, 2017

Four podcasts from MEASURE Evaluation experts weigh in on aspects of data crucial for effective HIV response. 

HIV care and treatment is crucial for reaching global 90-90-90 targets - that by 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status; 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy; and 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression. One approach is not sufficient. Considerations in planning and evaluating programs and services must include addressing stigma, location of services, populations most at risk, a mix of health service venues, and implications of gender.

The Carolina Population Center's MEASURE Evaluation project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, has conducted research that will improve the identification of groups that should be targeted for services and estimation of their size for better resource allocation; monitoring of program progress and accountability; and guidelines and tools that capture best practices on data use from national planning to site-specific service improvements.

Four brief podcasts from UNC experts at MEASURE Evaluation encapsulate some of the chief issues we address in evaluating programs and developing the tools needed to reach 90-90-90 goals and stem the tide of HIV transmission.
