The new mapping visualization has been created by Cogapp, the award-winning digital media and user-experience company.
It provides easy-to-understand information about the Alliance’s impact across four regions: Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
For each region, it maps data relating to the number of:
- people reached with information, education and communication materials and/or activities;
- people reached directly through services (excluding IEC);
- condoms distributed;
- organisations supported financially;
- decision-makers or leaders reached through advocacy.
In addition, country pages provide data relating to:
- number of people living with HIV/AIDS;
- prevalence of HIV;
- prevalence of TB;
- organizations working with HIV/AIDS Alliance.
Greg Hadfield, Cogapp’s director of strategic projects, said, ‘The Alliance continues to do remarkable work - as the latest annual review and impact data shows. Cogapp is inspired by a shared vision of how reporting of real-time data relating to HIV/AIDS - with appropriate funding from donors and stakeholders - could inform decision-makers and organisations preventing the spread of HIV and meeting the challenges of AIDS.’
Sam McPherson, associate director, field programmes at the Alliance, said, ‘The Alliance puts a high priority on ensuring that we collect and report on our programmes. We need to be transparent and accountable both to our donors and, critically, to our beneficiaries.’
‘There is great potential for achieving both these aims by presenting our data in an accessible and user-friendly way. We see this interactive map as just the beginning of a very exciting journey towards a vision where data can be used to bring the critical work of the Alliance to life.’
‘We are delighted to be working with Cogapp. They share our vision and have worked closely with us to produce this product.’
