Resource Spotlight: Promising Practices to Build Human Resources Capacity in HIV Strategic Information

Organizing framework for a functional national HIV M&E system
Framework for an HIV M&E system

Countries addressing HIV epidemics must lay the cornerstone for evidence-based planning and decision-making by first gathering strategic information (SI) from national monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems.One of the key lessons learned during the first phase of PEPFAR is that building national SI capacity requires supportive human resources for health (HRH) policies, organizational and leadership development and individual technical capacity development. Moreover, the foundation and sustainability of a country's HIV SI and national M&E system are heavily dependent on the availability and capacity of the implementing workforce. This document compiles examples of promising approaches or interventions from a wide range of countries that can be used by those creating country plans to strengthen the workforce to support a fully functional national-level M&E system and other SI activities for HIV.
