Better HIV/AIDS Data Can Improve Policy, Program Implementation

Writing in the Center for Global Development’s “Global Health Policy Blog,” CGD Senior Fellow Mead Over and Research Assistant Rifaiyat Mahbub discuss how better national HIV/AIDS data can play “an important role … in shaping policy.” They write, “Now is the time to dramatically improve [survey] frequency, granularity, and precision as the foundation for improved program implementation. The first step is including this strengthened survey function in estimates of the cost of the future HIV/AIDS response” (4/22).
