13th ICASA: Satellite Session - Skills Building: M&E and CRIS
-------------------------------------------------------------
 
Please join us for this Skills Building Session (hosted by UNAIDS 
Evaluation Department) at the 13th International Conference on 
AIDS and STD in Africa, in Nairobi:
 
* Developing national capacities for Monitoring and Evaluation 
and utilization of the Country Response Information System (CRIS)
 
The skills-building workshop will introduce participants to 
1) the newly developed UNAIDS Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E)
   Modules for National AIDS programs, and 
2) expose them to the CRIS software and its use.
 
The rapid expansion of new resources available to fight HIV/AIDS 
has given rise to a demand for effective monitoring and evalua-
tion (M&E). All stakeholders involved in the implementation of 
HIV/AIDS programmes at global and national levels need to famil-
iarize themselves with basic M&E concepts for an effective ex-
panded response to the epidemic.
 
The purposes of the modules that will form the basis of the first 
component of the skills building sessions, is to provide national 
AIDS programs and their partners with the knowledge and tools 
needed to establish a coherent M&E system. A solid M&E system 
contributes to more efficient use of data and resources by ensur-
ing that data are comparable over time and by reducing duplica-
tion of efforts.
 
The M&E modules will not make all practitioners working in 
HIV/AIDS, M&E experts; rather, it will allow them to critically 
look at existing M&E strategies, advise governments accordingly 
and refer them to M&E experts where needed.
 
Dates:
Tuesday, September 23rd, 10h30 to 12h00 & Wednesday, September 
24th, 14h00 to 15h30
 
Venue: Sixeighty Hotel
