In general, evaluation approaches and methods are applicable across a wide range of fields, ranging from education to public health issues. This section of the toolkit outlines some HIV-specific evaluation resources and tools for you to check out.

Resources

  • SAGE: A resource-sharing community for Canadian HIV and hepatitis C service providers – Sage is a community-driven space for organizations and other HIV and hepatitis C service providers in Canada to share and archive their digital information resources and connect with peers in the field.
  • A Framework for Monitoring and Evaluating HIV Prevention Programmes for Most-At-Risk Populations (UNAIDS) – This publication provides guidance to governments, international organizations, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and other members of civil society in monitoring and evaluating (M&E) HIV prevention programmes for most-at-risk populations. It is designed primarily for programme managers and others involved in planning and implementing M&E of programmes and projects for most-at-risk populations at both national and subnational levels.
  • Strategic Guidance for Evaluating HIV Prevention Programmes (UNAIDS) – This document provides strategic guidance for evaluating the effectiveness of HIV prevention programmes considering issues of programme relevance and appropriateness, reach and coverage, quality, outcome/impact and cost-effectiveness. Many guidelines and tools about evaluation already exist but this guidance specifically addresses current challenges in evaluating HIV prevention programmes which aim to address HIV transmission through sexual intercourse and injecting drug use
  • Quality Action: Improving HIV Prevention in Europe (EuroHealthNet) – Quality Action aims to increase the effectiveness of HIV prevention in Europe by using practical Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Improvement (QI) tools. Quality Action develops and adapts QA/QI tools especially for use in HIV prevention.
  • STOP HIV Quality Improvement Network – is an active community of improvers that is dedicated to sustaining and improving better care and outcomes for British Columbians living with HIV. The Network was formed in early 2012 to help participants from the STOP HIV/AIDS® Structured Learning Collaborative, and more recently the HIV Continuum of Care Collaborative, sustain their changes and continue to improve. Check out the Network’s Quality Improvement Resource Library.

PHAC Evaluation Tools

project-evaluation-report-guideProject Evaluation Report Guide: HIV and Hepatitis C Community Acton Fund

The Public Health Agency of Canada’s (PHAC) Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control (CCDIC) is pleased to provide you with this Project Evaluation Report Guide (Guide) to clarify its expectations for funding recipients. Organizations funded under the HIV and Hepatitis C Community Action Fund (Community Action Fund) will be required to submit a final Project Evaluation Report on the outcomes of their project. As well, they will need to outline how these outcomes were shared with others working to address HIV, hepatitis C, and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections. The Guide explains how to organize the final report, what to include in the different sections, and provides tips and a checklist to assist in writing the report.

 

compendium-hiv-hcv-outcomesCompendium of Evaluation Tools to Measure Outcomes for Community Based Projects funded under the HIV & Hepatitis C Community Action Fund

To support performance measurement and evaluation by funded recipients, the Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control developed this compendium of validated evaluation tools. The purpose of the Compendium is to provide funded recipients with evaluation tools that will support them in their evaluation activities, and to respond to PHAC’s requirement to measure the achievement of project outcomes. The Compendium should be considered as a resource. This is also a very useful resource for any community-based HIV or HCV organization who is building an evaluation plan or framework.
