summary
Summary
  • Resources for SGS are limited, so it is important to develop an epidemiologically driven process for prioritizing what type of data collection/analysis to do in which groups in which areas
  • Collecting all types of data everywhere is not an effective use of resources
  • The PSA can be reframed as part of staying AHEAD, specifically by:
    • Defining geographic units
    • Assessing what is known
    • Prioritizing further which data to collect
