Resource Description:

Planning an HIV program requires determining its goals, developing activities to implement in order to reach the goals, and setting targets for the activities, which the program’s capacity can reach. Clear national targets for HIV programs will promote partner alignment to national priorities and hold countries directly accountable for reaching the targets they set themselves. However, there is tension between the need to reach international targets that aim for universal coverage of health services versus the need to set targets for which the nation can attain. This dilemma is especially true in cases where funding is tied to programmatic performance, as is the case with grants from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund). This document aims to provide policymakers with insight on how to set ambitious yet achievable targets.
