Population-based HIV Impact Assessments (PHIA)

The PHIA Project measures the reach and impact of HIV programs in PEPFAR-supported countries through national surveys. Each population-based HIV impact assessment (PHIA) survey offers household-based HIV counselling and testing conducted by trained survey staff, with return of results. The surveys also ask questions about access to preventive care and treatment services for adults and children. The results measure national and regional progress toward UNAIDS' 90-90-90 goals and guide policy and funding priorities.

Since its inception in 1995, the Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) has become the largest source of statistically sound and internationally comparable data on women and children worldwide. In countries as diverse as Costa Rica, Mali, and Qatar, trained fieldwork teams conduct face-to-face interviews with household members on a variety of topics – focusing mainly on those issues that directly affect the lives of children and women.

Goals Express

Goals Express is based on the Goals Model, a full featured simulation model, that can be used to plan HIV prevention and treatment programs. The Goals Model simulates the spread of HIV in a national population and estimates the impact of scaling up various prevention and treatment programs on the trend in new HIV infections, AIDS deaths and costs. The model can be used to examine alternate strategies to find those that are the most effective and cost-effective in different epidemic settings.
