Using Information to Align Services and Link and Retain Men in the HIV Cascade
Location(s): South Africa
Using Information to Align Services and Link and Retain Men in the HIV Cascade, or ‘iALARM’—uses health information to ‘raise the alarm’ about men’s continuing poor performance and outcomes in HIV care, from prevention and testing, through to ART initiation, adherence and retention in care. The project is rooted in an ongoing collaboration between the NY3 Clinic in Gugulethu and Sonke Gender Justice’s ‘Men’s Wellness Centre’, located on the grounds of the clinic. iALARM aims to strengthen the alignment of these clinic and NGO services for men in the area by combining data from several existing sources of routine health information and using this information on an ongoing basis to coordinate and improve services for men.
