Using Maps for Prevention, Planning, and Targeting Experiences from Swaziland

  1. 1. Using Maps for Prevention, Planning, and Targeting Experiences from Swaziland Isabel Brodsky MEASURE Evaluation March 2017 Mid-Project Meeting
  2. 2. Swaziland has the highest HIV prevalence in the world (26% of adults ages 15–49). Understanding spatial variations in HIV prevalence at a granular level allows Swaziland to strategically target its prevention efforts. Background
  3. 3. Steps to Analysis
  4. 4. Value Added of this Approach Population-based surveys are expensive to administer. These surveys do not happen routinely. Sample sizes do not allow you to estimate at lower administrative levels. This methodology produces HIV prevalence estimates at the lowest level of granularity and allows for continuous monitoring of the epidemic through the use of routinely available data.
