GIS and HIV: Linking HIV Databases in Rwanda. A Case Study Abstract:

This case study describes the process of developing, implementing, and evaluating a geographic information system (GIS) project in Rwanda. The document describes Rwanda’s HIV epidemic; gives an overview of GIS and its relevance to Rwanda, HIV monitoring and evaluation, and international goals and guidance; and details the process of implementing a GIS workshop for tracking Rwanda's HIV epidemic. The project description includes both the capacity-building process, which enabled stakeholders to create maps and share data, and the development of a logic framework to track program outcomes; and suggests lessons learned for other countries and organizations that wish to use GIS to link and monitor HIV data.
