This series of Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) tools has been developed in response to some of the most common questions we receive about CLM. Each tool, guide and brief is written in clear language that is meant to be easily understood by a community audience.
As communities are faced with opportunities to scale up CLM – including through the Global Fund’s GC7 cycle and PEPFAR’s COPs process – we hope this detailed information about specific topics is useful across your many efforts.
ITPC is excited to share a series of newly developed resources on Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) that we are officially launching today on our CLM HUB and the ITPC Global website.
CLM DATA MANAGEMENT TOOL GUIDE
This tool explores how to think critically about selecting the best CLM Database format. What are the critical questions to ask to make an informed choice when selecting the best database, including: data use needs, privacy, ease of use and sharing, costs, and many more. It is intended for community led organisations.
DATA ANALYSIS METHODS IN CLM
This guide explains key processes involved in analyzing qualitative and quantitative data collected through CLM. It provides an introduction to mixed methods data analysis techniques to help communities integrate findings and bring forward more meaningful conclusions.
These guidance documents were developed with support from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria under the Community-led Monitoring investment of the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM).
You can access all of our CLM Technical Briefs at www.clmhub.org; they are translated into French, Spanish, and Russian.
Also available on the CLM HUB:
- “From insights to evidence”, a guide to developing quantitative and qualitative indicators for use in CLM programs. Download the CLM Technical Brief here.
- “Precision in a Pandemic”, a guide to ensuring high-quality CLM data. Download Precision in a Pandemic here.
- “CLM toolkit for implementation” Download the CLM tooLkit here
- “Guide to support CLM data use in Decision-Making” Data use in Decision-Making here.
Several additional resources are being finalized and will be available on the CLM Hub shortly, including:
COMMUNITY GUIDE FOR CLM DATA USE IN DECISION MAKING
This is intended to be used by community organizations to educate, orient, and sensitize different types of decision makers about how to value and utilize CLM data. This guide will be available in English, French, Russian and Spanish language.
STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE FOR APPLYING TO THE UNAIDS TECHNICAL SUPPORT MECHANISM IN 2023
Since the process changed recently, ITPC developed a practical ‘Cheat Sheet’ on specific steps CBO need to take when applying for UNAIDS Technical support in 2023 and beyond.
Please feel free to share these resources widely with your community partners!
