Location, Location: Connecting People Faster to HIV Services
This document discusses new opportunities to reverse the HIV epidemic in specific locations and among key populations at higher risk of HIV exposure.
Since HIV data collection is expanding, new methods are being used to identify where localized epidemics may be emerging, where specific populations are carrying the highest burden of disease and where vital HIV services are deficient or absent.
These data are being combined in innovative ways, including with geographical information, to produce more detailed and vivid understandings of the HIV epidemic, all the way to the district and subdistrict levels. This makes it possible to focus HIV programs more precisely and effectively and to offer or adapt services to reach greater numbers of people in need.
This document covers the following:
- Benefits of a location-based approach
- Using location-specific analysis
- Implications and next steps
