Abstract 1 Title: Data Driven Review – practical application for a HIV prevention program
Presentation Abstract 1:

The CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) Prevention Strategy supports the National HIV/AIDS Strategy through a high-impact prevention approach. This approach maximizes the effectiveness of current HIV prevention methods, by using combinations of scientifically proven, cost-effective, and scalable interventions targeted to the right populations in the right geographic areas. The newly implemented Data Driven Review (DDR) process in DHAP aims to examine data to determine key populations and/or geography where HIV prevention efforts may need to be strengthened. In this presentation, we describe the Data Driven Review process and provide a practical example of a topic that was explored and the result. Additionally, we highlight challenges faced, lessons learned, and opportunities for improvement in the process.

Abstract 2 Title: Practical Application: Tools used to manage and conduct Data Driven Reviews
Presentation Abstract 2:

The Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has conducted data driven reviews to help identify key priorities and issues and propose solutions for program implementation. Data driven reviews are detailed processes that involves an understanding of data for decision making. When conducting and managing a data driven review, the process requires the use of various tools. These tools are used by those involved in the process to collect and manage data and facilitate an effective data driven review. This presentation will highlight the developed and adapted tools utilized by DHAP in the Data Driven Review process – a dashboard used to monitor strategic indicators for decision making, project plans, meeting facilitation and data management tools. Additionally, we will highlight challenges, lessons learned, and opportunities for enhancement of the various tools for conducting data driven reviews.

Session Abstract (150 words): 

Increasingly, the federal government is emphasizing the use of data for decision making and to improve or optimize program implementation. Accordingly, the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has started implementing a Data Driven Review (DDR) process designed to identify key program challenges and proposed solutions that would improve program implementation and outcomes. Key Division leadership and diverse staff from across the Division participate in these DDR sessions. This session describes the DDR process, the tools used, and provides a practical example of a topic in which the DDR process led to action. We highlight lessons learned and opportunities for improvement.
