The Standardized Use of Customized Indicators to Improve the Monitoring of Key Populations Clinical Cascade

The LINKAGES project, PEPFAR and USAID’s largest global project dedicated to key populations, has developed a set of standardized, custom indicators for the KP clinical cascade. These indicators make it more accurately account for the number of key populations living with HIV supported by PEPFAR funds. PEPFAR, national government, and civil society organizations use the indicators to support data-based decision-making and resource allocation in the effort to control the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
