Evaluating the impact of national
HIV prevention programs

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently provides grant
funding to community-based organizations (CBOs) and health departments (HDs)
to conduct HIV prevention programs in local communities.


The CDC has established data requirements for National HIV Prevention Monitoring and Evaluation (NHM&E) activities. The grant recipients are required to submit their NHM&E data to CDC to fulfill the obligations of their cooperative agreements. The CDC faces the task of effectively utilizing this data to report on local and national HIV prevention efforts and assess their overall impact.

CB STRAT’s Solution

Our skillful team combines deep expertise in program evaluation methodologies with advanced data analytics techniques to facilitate the assessment of HIV prevention programs. We develop comprehensive evaluation frameworks tailored to CDC’s specific needs, ensuring accurate measurement of outcomes, program effectiveness, and stakeholder satisfaction. We leverage modern data analysis tools and robust statistical models to transform complex data sets into clear and meaningful reports, visualizations, and recommendations.

The results of our efforts enable CDC to make data-informed decisions – utilizing the data for policy updates, program monitoring, and especially for improvement of HIV prevention activities.

Training and technical assistance to
support federal grant recipients

National HIV Prevention Program Monitoring and Evaluation (NHM&E) is a set of standardized HIV
prevention data variables. For The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), collection of these
variables allows for detailed and comprehensive reporting of HIV prevention program activities, including
fiscal information, client service data, and data required for calculating program performance indicators.


Public health departments and community-based organizations receiving grant funding through CDC cooperative agreements are required to conduct NHM&E data collection and reporting as part of their implementation of HIV prevention programs. The CDC sought to strengthen its support to the grant recipient community by providing impact-focused technical assistance and tailored training that incorporates input from subject matter experts.

Our efforts yielded positive outcomes by equipping recipients with readily available assistance to
effectively implement HIV prevention programs in accordance with the federal grant objectives.

effectively engage with the recipient community.
