Abstract

"Many different countries and institutions have contributed to the current understanding of how best to monitor and evaluate HIV and AIDS programmes. This guide, the result of a broad consultation with country programme staff, donor representatives and evaluation specialists from institutions all over the world, attempts to bring together their experience. It aims to summarise the best practices in the field of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of national HIV and AIDS programmes at the end of the 1990s, and to recommend options for M&E systems in the future. By consolidating existing data collection instruments and creating a framework within which improved instruments can be developed, this guide and the toolkit which accompanies it aim to simplify an increasingly complex field. This introduction outlines the contents of the toolkit and gives an overview of the different functions of surveillance, monitoring and evaluation. The next part of the guide describes the main features of a sound M&E system. Finally, indicators for key areas of HIV prevention, AIDS care and STI control programmes are proposed. It should be stressed that this is not an attempt to reinvent the wheel. In proposing indicators, the guide takes into account existing standards and experience. New indicators are only proposed in those areas where none previously existed, or where country experience suggests that existing indicators are not useful or have been overtaken by the HIV epidemic."
