Surveillance on HIV/AIDS Project (2003)

Funded by the European Commission and UNAIDS
Summary Progress Report
January-December 2002

The overall goal and objective of the EC supported HIV/AIDS surveillance project are to develop and field test the second generation surveillance framework proposed by WHO/UNAIDS by improving the collection, analysis and interpretation of data on HIV/AIDS, sexual behaviour and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) in a more sustainable fashion. During this phase such systems are developed and implemented in eight developing countries with different epidemic states from the Africa, Latin America and Asia regions. The project started in 1999.

The report contains the main activities implemented in 2002, the progress of specific activities in each country, next steps, problems encountered and outline of the main activities planned for 2003. Country-specific documents produced in the context of the project can be found on the accompanying CDROM.
