Two Things Are Not Always Better, but Two Things that Can Relate Are an Improvement Abstract:

In Côte d’Ivoire, two databases exist for HIV-related programs. One of the programs benefits orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). The other program, DREAMS, (“Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe”) is for adolescent girls and young women at risk for HIV. These two programs originated years apart, and their databases are separate. The problem now—as both programs are operating in proximity to each other across Côte d’Ivoire—is that their separate information platforms can’t talk to each other. 

MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, is supporting development of a link between the OVC and DREAMS databases. This brief outlines the process for developing this link and expected results of these efforts.
