Missing the Target

Missing the Target (MTT) is a community-led research report series that seeks to contributes a unique perspective to global health advocacy. Rather than waiting to get the attention of outside researchers or development institutions, the MTT model puts the power in the hands of affected communities to document their issues. The model is unique in empowering communities affected by HIV to develop research methodology and undertake community-led research. As a result, critical gaps in the HIV response are exposed earlier and people empowered to advocate for relevant solutions.

MTT is part of ITPC’s Watch What Matters campaign, a community monitoring and research initiative to gather data on access to, and quality of HIV treatment globally. Watch What Matters aims to streamline and standardize treatment access data that communities collect. Watch What Matters helps to empower communities to systematically collect and analyse qualitative and quantitative data, analyse it and use it to guide advocacy and promote accountability.

To date, there have been 12 reports developed under the MTT. Here are some of our previous reports:
