UNAIDS and its partners have developed a set of core indicators that permit the monitoring of key international and national actions, national programme outcomes, and impact entitled National AIDS programmes: A guide to monitoring and evaluation (UNAIDS/00.17E, June 2000). This guide has been widely distributed and used. As a consequence of rapid developments in HIV/AIDS prevention and care in the last few years, however, some important areas are not covered. One important shortcoming is that insufficient attention is paid to the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of programmes for the prevention of HIV infection in infants and young children. The present guide is an attempt to fill this gap.
