Data Alignment Indicators - 2018

Indicators and associated disaggregations for the PEPFAR/MoH Data Alignment activity 2018

The MoH and PEPFAR Data Alignment activity will focus on the harmonization of five MER 2.0 indicators as provided below:

  1. HTS_TST: 
    • Number of individuals who received HIV Testing Services (HTS) and received their test results
      • Total (Numerator)
      • Coarse Disaggregations:
        • Age (<15, 15+, Unknown)
        • Sex (Female, Male, Unknown)
        • Test Status (Positive, Negative)
      • Fine Disaggregations: 
        • Age (<1,1-9,10-14,15-19,20-24,25-29,30-34,35-39,40-49,50+,Unknown)
        • Sex (Female, Male, Unknown for ages <1,1-9)
        • Test Status (Positive, Negative)
  2. PMTCT_ART: 
    • Number of HIV-positive pregnant women who received antiretroviral therapy (ART) to reduce the risk of mother-to-child- transmission during pregnancy
      • Totals (Numerator)
  3. PMTCT_STAT:
    • Number of pregnant women with known HIV status at antenatal care (includes those who already knew their HIV status prior to ANC)
      • Totals (Numerator)
      • Fine & Coarse Disaggregations:
        • Status (Known Positive, Newly Tested Positives, New Negatives)
      • Fine Disaggregations: 
        • Age (<1,1-9,10-14,15-19,20-24,25-29,30-34,35-39,40-49,50+,Unknown)
  4. TX_CURR:
    • Number of adults and children currently receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART)
      • Coarse Disaggregations:
        • Age (<15, 15+, Unknown)
        • Sex (Female, Male, Unknown)
      • Fine Disaggregations: 
        • Age (<1,1-9,10-14,15-19,20-24,25-29,30-34,35-39,40-49,50+,Unknown)
        • Sex (Female, Male, Unknown for ages <1,1-9)
  5. TX_NEW:
    • Number of adults and children newly enrolled and on antiretroviral therapy (ART)
      • Coarse Disaggregations:
        • Age (<15, 15+, Unknown)
        • Sex (Female, Male, Unknown)
      • Fine Disaggregations: 
        • Age (<1,1-9,10-14,15-19,20-24,25-29,30-34,35-39,40-49,50+,Unknown)
        • Sex (Female, Male, Unknown for ages <1,1-9)

 

To facilitate meaningful cross-analysis of data, the indicators should:

  1. Capture annual results in alignment with PEPFAR’s calendar year for COP17/FY 2018 (October 1, 2017 - September 30, 2018)
  2. Capture facility-level data for all facilities where the service is provided (including PEPFAR facilities)
  3. Use data that is considered official MoH data

Note: If data aligned to PEPFAR’s fiscal year cannot be provided, countries should provide details on the time period used in the narrative.

 

Reporting by disaggregation

  1. New countries: Required to report on coarse disaggregates, though may report fine disaggregates if feasible.
  2. Returning countries: Requested to report on fine disaggregates; may report coarse disaggregates if the data are not available within their system.
  3. All sites must report either fine or coarse disaggregates for each indicator. However, MOH teams may choose to report on fine disaggregates for some indicators and coarse for others. For example, if the team chooses fine disaggregates for HTS_TST, then all sites must report fine disaggregates. However, the team may still choose to report coarse disaggregates for PMTCT_STAT.

 

Calculation constraints

  1. Calculations used in the mapping of indicators (either within the MoH System or through the Data Alignment Indicator Mapping Tool) should not involve any calculation of data using multiplication or division (e.g. [TX_NEW_Females] = [TX_NEW_Total] / 2).
  2. Calculation of values by addition of finer disaggregates (e.g. [HTS_TST<15] = [HTS_TST_under10] + [HTS_TST_10to14]) is acceptable. Calculation by subtraction (e.g. [HTS_TST_NEG] = [HTS_TST_Total] – [HTS_TST_POS]) is acceptable but should be flagged for your SI Advisor and HIS iSME.
  3. Any decimals or negative numbers in the import file will result in a rejection of the import file along with a list of offending sites for review and correction.

 

Country Narrative

In addition to the indicators, this year we have included a field for a country narrative. This will be used to provide descriptions on the following items:

  1. Data sources used for indicators
  2. How data sources were mapped for disaggregate reporting
  3. Time period
  4. Definitions, especially any deviations from MER definitions
  5. Any other context as necessary
