We are very pleased to present How To Implement Community-Led Monitoring: A Community Toolkit.
We really hope that this how-to guide will help community organizations at every stage of implementing community-led monitoring, from designing to running and even resourcing.
This publication would not have been possible without the UNAIDS Task Force, our national CLM community partners, and several other key contributors. We sincerely thank everyone who shared their expertise, gave their time and joined their effort to this project.
Community-led monitoring uses the power of people living with HIV and key populations to transform information on health systems into life-saving advocacy campaigns. It rapidly generates data on HIV prevention and treatment services and empowers communities to use their findings to identify and advocate for solutions that break down barriers to human rights, better health and higher quality of life. The end goal of community-led monitoring is not the data collection; it is using the resulting evidence to improve policy and practice. And that is exactly what we hope this publication will help communities to do!
This publication is part of Watch What Matters, a community-led monitoring and research initiative to gather data on access to and quality of HIV treatment globally. French and Spanish translations will be available soon.
