The Prevention & Public Health Group (PPHG) excels in providing training, technical assistance, and active mentoring in a variety of effective methodologies for international HIV surveillance. Essential to our approach are surveillance tools that can be locally adapted and used to produce high-quality, reliable data that will inform policy and programs that will improve the health of HIV-affected populations and reduce the spread of the virus. Our team assists in the design and implementation of surveys. We also provide technical assistance in performing surveillance data analysis and producing surveillance reports and other publications that present surveillance data clearly and effectively for specific audiences.
To help scientists, officials, and health professionals advance their ability to gather such data, we have developed a series of HIV surveillance training materials in close partnership with collaborators and funders, including US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and Tulane University. Building on the core themes of the training materials, we conduct surveillance workshops shaped to the needs of participants.
These training materials provide training in the following:
