A Joint IMPACT/FHI/UNAIDS Workshop: Report and Conclusions
This document aims to describe the contribution behavioural data can make to the planning, execution, and monitoring of HIV prevention activities. It considers the available tools and recommends a minimum data collection package that varies according to the stage a country has reached in its HIV epidemic. The purpose of this document is to guide national programmes in setting up efficient behavioural assessment and monitoring programmes to assist them in programme design, direction, and evaluation.
Compiled by Family Health International and UNAIDS, this document draws on the experience of several organisations and countries in collecting behavioural data.
