Monitoring tools and guidelines

1. Tools for collecting data on the health sector response to HIV/AIDS in 2010

WHO, UNICEF and UNAIDS have developed the Joint reporting tool on the health sector response to HIV/AIDS and will jointly publish a report in the second half of 2011 on progress in scaling up the health sector response to HIV/AIDS towards universal access, including HIV services for women and children. This tool has been jointly developed by the UN agencies in an effort to harmonize data collection and minimize the reporting burden on countries. The latest version of the reporting tool is available for download from http://www.who.int/hiv/data/tool2011/en/index.html  


The tool has been translated into several official United Nations languages. Countries that have not yet begun completing the tool are recommended to download the latest version. The guidance document provides detailed descriptions of the indicators in the reporting tool and is designed to support countries in completing the tool.
