The Global AIDS Monitoring (GAM) process for the 2018 period is already underway. Countries need to send their progress reports to UNAIDS by March 31, 2019.
Meaningful involvement of the community sector in the GAM process is a requirement for a real measurement of the effectiveness of national AIDS responses. The reports resulting from these processes must reflect reviews and input from all national stakeholders, including the community sector. However, community sector groups – and particularly key populations- are often not adequately involved or are excluded in these processes.
In the past, ICASO and partners have supported community sector groups in different countries to be involved in the review and reporting. Reviews done by the community sector, including by ICASO indicate that involvement of the community sector has been varied: in some countries participation and engagement have been outstanding, while in others, exclusion has been the rule. The quality and completeness of the country progress reports also varied and in most parts reflected the level of multistakeholders participation (better participation = better report)

Please complete the survey developed by ICASO to learn about the experiences of civil society and people living with HIV in relation to Global AIDS Monitoring 2019. The results of the survey will be used to develop a report summarizing experiences across different countries and regions. They will also be used to make recommendations to improve the Global AIDS Monitoring process in the future. Survey ends 30 April 2019
