Best Practices for Gender in the Monitoring and Evaluation of HIV Programs Abstract:

Gender is a critical component of efforts to control the HIV epidemic. Gender influences who is vulnerable to HIV and able to seek and access care and treatment, as well as norms around HIV prevention, treatment, and stigma. To reach epidemic control effectively, gender must be considered in HIV programs and policies, and thus in monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), created this brief to share best practices in gender M&E for HIV programming. We recommend including gender at every step of monitoring and evaluating the clinical cascade; using qualitative and quantitative gender data to inform and adapt HIV programming; paying special attention to priority populations; and keeping gender-based violence and structural considerations in the forefront of planning and interpretation to ensure advancement toward HIV epidemic control. This brief shares more.
