Community-Led Monitoring

Community-led monitoring (CLM) is a critical part of data collection, allowing communities to identify real-time gaps in access and provide new insights about the state of a country’s HIV and broader health response.

CLM covers four key areas: educationevidenceengagement and advocacy. When communities have tools and techniques to collect and analyse their own data, they are able to increase domestic oversight and conduct evidence-based advocacy to improve services for HIV and related conditions.

ITPC has been monitoring the scale up and quality of HIV treatment in different countries around the world over the last decade. Through this work, we refined a model for community-led monitoring known as a community treatment observatory (CTO).
