Guidelines for 2014 Global AIDS response progress reporting released
24 January 2014
The 2014 Global AIDS response progress reporting (GARPR) guidelines were released on 24 January. The guidelines provide countries with technical guidance on how to measure progress towards the ten targets set in the 2011 United Nations Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS. They include the detailed specifications of the core indicators, the data required, and how data will be interpreted.
The guidelines invited countries to submit their monitoring data, HIV estimates and a narrative report for the year 2013 by 31 March 2014. The results will be used to inform several reports published by UNAIDS in 2014, including a report on the global AIDS epidemic.
The guidelines encourage countries to use the data gathering as an opportunity to consult with key constituents, including civil society, on how to improve the national AIDS response. This round of reporting also provides the occasion to reprogramme efforts with development partners, including with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in preparation for its new funding model.
