This session addresses the potential for using routine patient-level data to monitor the health sector response to HIV, as recommended in the WHO Consolidated Strategic Information Guidelines. This session is targeted towards those interested in using patient-level data for estimating the prevalence of HIV infection, measuring the reach of HIV services, and for decision-making. The session comprises five presentations from leading experts which highlight key areas for an integrated and well-functioning patient-level clinical and strategic HIV information system: unique identifiers; civil / vital registration, laboratory and patient information systems, morbidity surveillance, and interoperability. At the completion of the session, participants will understand how routine patient-level data may be used in countries, including high prevalence settings in sub-Saharan Africa and how to collect information along the cascade of HIV care and treatment as a principal way to track the epidemic and response.
