Global data on HIV treatment often masks national realities and local disparities. In order for us to achieve sustainable public health outcomes, progress towards HIV targets must be inclusive of, and responsive to data on both access and quality of HIV services. Community-led monitoring and research offer the potential to increase domestic oversight and advocacy for improvements to HIV treatment.
Community-led monitoring can supplement national health data by collecting data that would otherwise be excluded, producing shadow reports that hold governments accountable, and build evidence to inform civil society and community advocacy for improved care and services.
Over the last decade, ITPC has been monitoring the scale up and quality of HIV treatment in different countries around the world from a community perspective.
Building on this work, our Watch What Matters campaign aims to streamline and standardize treatment access data collected by communities – helping ensure that data reflects the issues and questions that are most important to people living with and affected by HIV.
