Welcome to the Data Use Community (DUC)!

The DUC was built to leverage the expertise in clinical care, systems, policy, and data reuse and analysis, along with the field experience available across implementing agencies, ministries, and implementing partners, to create a peer support network of interested practitioners. This DUC will initially focus on guidance regarding approaches for enhancing continuity of treatment and interruption in treatment. We propose to then extend this tested approach to address other evolving priorities that can only be addressed through individual patient-level data.

The DUC will operate in a community and iterative way to support U.S. Government country teams and Ministries of Health.

The DUC will initially be working towards the following goals:

  • Be initiated with founding members with relevant clinical expertise for HIV prevention, treatment, and care, informatics, and data science.
  • Consolidate best practices, drawn from country experience, to a generally applicable and context-specific approach to improve continuity of treatment and reduce interruption in treatment, with specific attention to the data and systems approach.
  • Ensure field experience sharing, improve interagency coordination and collaboration, and integrate group efforts to support program goals.

Monthly Community Meetings

The monthly community meetings are the heart of the Data Use Community. This was the original meeting point where we hope to see the whole community to come together to discuss and hear the work of this making efforts in-country on data use, HIV prevention and the efforts within the HIV treatment cycle. Each month will have a different focus that will be advertised as soon as possible. Suggest meeting topics on the community forum!
