As part of its coordination role for the HIV/AIDS Response, Uganda AIDS Commission (UAC) is continuously mapping the activities of stakeholders involved in providing/supporting HIV/AIDS services in the country.

As a first step, UAC established an online web-based database to capture and map information on the HIV and AIDS services being undertaken by stakeholders, as well as the non-health (non-biomedical) outputs from the activities. Such information will improve the coordination of partners in the national HIV and AIDS response, help to guide the allocation and alignment of resources, and overall lead to a more efficient and effective response. The E-mapping system mainly provides information on who is doing what and where in the country to avail information on service coverage.

Secondly, UAC and other stakeholders agreed on 19 key indicators in order to measure progress of the joint effort towards common goals. The data for the indicators is collected from civil society organisations (CSO) through structural and behavioural intervention questionnaires at Sub-County level. The indicators allow UAC to analyze trends and use the data to track the contribution of the civil society towards the national response.
