Data Use Cases

Data use cases body

MEASURE Evaluation reached out to implementing organizations to learn about instances where community-based HIV data for key indicators informed programmatic actions, plans, or decisions, ideally leading to associated changes in resource allocation or beneficiary outcomes.

The data use examples provided below detail cases where data collected for indicators in this collection have been used to inform decisions that led to reallocation of project inputs or that could be attributed to improved outputs or outcomes. Community-based projects can draw from these examples to inform their own data demand and use strategies, ensuring that results are interpreted regularly for use in decision making at all levels of a health system—a necessary step in controlling the HIV epidemic. See also our Conceptual Framework for Community-Based HIV Program Data Demand and Use.
