Preparing the place report data1

Preparing the PLACE Report Data

“Read” data into EpiInfo

Clean data

  • During data entry, a “check program” should be used to prevent invalid data.

  • If a “check program” was not used, invalid responses should be changed to “missing data.”


After data are cleaned and ready

Describing key indicators for the place report

Describing Key Indicators for the PLACE Report

  • Local PLACE teams identify which key indicators should be used and how priority venues for interventions will be identified.

  • Key indicators can include:

    % of patrons aged 15-24

    % of patrons who are unemployed

    % of patrons who are students

    % of patrons who visit venue daily

    % of patrons who have injected drugs in past month

    % of patrons ever tested for HIV.

  • Condom availability at venues should always be included.


Place report preliminary recommendations priority venues

PLACE Report Preliminary Recommendations: Priority Venues

  • Criteria for selecting priority venues to receive an intervention will depend on the local epidemic and the amount of resources available to field an intervention response.

  • Priority sites should be those where populations key to the transmission of HIV/AIDS in <PPA> interact.


Place report preliminary recommendations priority venues1

PLACE Report Preliminary Recommendations: Priority Venues

Criteria that have been used to identify priority venues include:

  • popular venues

  • large venues

  • specific key population venues

    e.g. sex workers, injecting drug users, men who have sex with men, youth

  • overlap venues

    e.g. frequented by two or more key populations

  • high partnership venues


Next steps sharing results

Next Steps: Sharing Results


Sharing results

Sharing Results:

  • Present the PLACE report at local and regional feedback workshops.

  • At feedback workshops, the list of recommendations and action plans are finalized.


Sharing results1

Sharing Results:

  • Additional analysis may be important:

    behavior among certain age groups;

    behavior among key populations; or

    behavior at venues with certain characteristics.

  • Conduct a data use workshop with intervention groups.
