In 2011-12, the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) worked with the HIV Health and Human Services Planning Council to update the Comprehensive Plan for 2012-15. While goals remained constant, the EMA’s planning process benefited from rigorous annual evaluation and reporting on the 2009-2012 plan indicators. Using three years of data and two levels of analysis per indicator, the planning partners arrived at specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound indicators in four outcome areas, covering the care continuum and both improvement and disparities-focused objectives. In addition to local data, the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and other strategic planning initiatives were referenced to select meaningful, consistent targets. The process of plan development has become fully integrated with the EMA’s needs assessment, planning and evaluation activities.

Learning Objectives:

  • To recognize types of data sources that can effectively be used to measure local and overall Ryan White Part A-funded program progress on comprehensive plan indicators, and ways in which different sources complement one another
  • To understand how Grantee-Planning Council collaborative working groups can apply National HIV/AIDS Strategy guidance to the process of selecting appropriate local indicators
  • To learn mechanisms to achieve a thorough integration of comprehensive plan evaluation, local needs assessment and ongoing comprehensive plan development activities
