Technology
Technology

  • Approx 6,600 sites geo-coded (i.e. placed on earth using GPS coordinates) from a combination of tools

    • Streetmaps, Google Earth, Google Maps, and data from EMISand the DHIS

  • Reporting and mapping tool developed using open source tools


Data validation
Data validation

  • Positional accuracy and attribute accuracy

  • Face Validation

    10 questionnaire items used to determine face validity of reported data

  • Assessment of completeness indicated 97% of the partners completed the Inventory - overall score of 88% could be assigned according to face validation

  • The score would have been higher if activity managers championed the review of the data


Strategic decision making and planning with SA Govt

Opportunity for transparency and accountability to SA Govt

Internal transparency within USG a possibility

Allows for tracking of USD investment in HIV/AIDS by geography

Allows for tracking of provincial activity and budget coverage








Challenges
Challenges

  • Master Facility List

  • Program Manager involvement from USG

  • Changing requirements

  • Bandwidth to view the mapping tool

  • Budget information and transparency – reluctance

  • Update interval – currently yearly


Conclusions recommendations
Conclusions & Recommendations

  • Access to data is a critical requirement to enable transparency & accountability

  • Measuring the progress for getting to zero requires support from all stakeholders

  • Expenditure information is a critical piece of the puzzle to match effort to cost

  • Accessibility of this information to local governments help with local and national planning and coordination
