Country Harmonization and Alignment Tool (CHAT)
A tool to address harmonization and alignment challenges by assessing strengths and effectiveness of partnerships in the national AIDS response. The Country Harmonization and Alignment Tool (CHAT) has been designed to help national AIDS authorities and their partners gauge the level of participation and engagement in the national AIDS response, and the degree of harmonization and alignment of international partners. CHAT will help to assess partner adherence to the “Three Ones” principles and international partners’ adherence to the commitments in the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (2005). In its function as a “barometer” of the status of harmonization and alignment at country lie, CHAT can serve as an advocacy tool for focusing dialogue and driving progress towards a more effective AIDS response.
