“Will Data Indicators Help Our AIDS Effort?”
Wednesday November 28, 2012
In July, HHS Secretary Sebelius approved seven indicators as the key, common and core elements for measuring progress or need in the domestic HIV/AIDS response.
Two years after the release of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, the White House report on implementation noted that “the collection and analysis of data are critical to informing implementation efforts. At the programmatic level, a focus on decreasing data collection burden, increasing data quality, and harmonizing data collection requirements to emphasize the most salient HIV outcomes will provide data to determine what is effective and what needs to change.”
The AIDS community has been told that these indicators will be used to streamline data collection and reduce undue reporting burden on HIV services grantees.
What do you think? Share your thoughts with key federal officials and each other in an engaging, timely webinar.
Will the indicators make a difference? How will they be used? What will this mean in the “day in a life” of those working on the front lines of the epidemic? Will they capture or bypass structural issues and health disparities, and will they change the way we confront the epidemic?
