The new program tool will be designed specifically for programs rather than projects. We use the word ‘program’ for combinations of interventions that work together to achieve a change in health status such as reducing new HIV infections. Programs are often on-going as compared to projects that have an end date. Examples of programs are national or regional HIV prevention action plans or comprehensive services incorporating testing, counselling, outreach, needle exchange and condom distribution.

The program tool will be based on already existing tools such as the Global AIDS Response Progress Reporting (GARPR) set including the National Commitments and Policies Instrument (NCPI), used worldwide by UNAIDS and adapted for Europe by ECDC to collect relevant data on HIV programs at the national level, and elements of the other already existing, validated QI tools mentioned above.
