Number of the targeted population reached with individual and/or small group level HIV prevention interventions that are primarily focused on abstinence and/or being faithful, and are based on evidence and/or meet the minimum standards required
This information will be used to report to congress on AB only interventions.
Number of the target population reached with individual and/or small group level HIV prevention interventions that are primarily focused on abstinence and/or being faithful, and are based on evidence and/or meet the minimum standards required
Total number of intended target population in the catchment area
*Recommended at partner level only
Explanation of Numerator
The numerator can be generated by counting the number of de-duplicated individuals from an activity defined target population who are reached primarily through AB prevention intervention.
Primarily focused: The messages and content of the activities spend the majority of their time discussing; increasing individual and group’s self-risk assessments; building the skills; and other supportive behavioral, cognitive and social components to increase the AB behaviors.
Abstinence and/or being faithful: AB interventions can include programs, services, and messages which encourage sexual abstinence, delay of sexual debut and secondary abstinence, mutual fidelity, mutual knowledge of HIV status, and social and gender norms which promote mutual respect and open communication about sexuality. AB interventions can also include programs, services, and messages which discourage multiple and/or concurrent partnerships, cross-generational and transactional sex, sexual violence, stigma, and other harmful gender norms and practices. AB interventions targeting
youth should support skills-based sexuality and AIDS education as well as involve parents and guardians to improve communication with children and parenting skills.
See Indicator #P8.1.D for definitions of additional terms required to define this indicator:
Comprehensive Prevention Programs
Intended Target Population
Small group level interventions (GLI)
Minimum Standards Required
Intended number of sessions
Explanation of Denominator (recommended at partner level):
Catchment area: Geographic region from which persons come to receive HIV prevention services, or from which persons are being recruited into HIV prevention services. The size and population of this area can vary, depending on organization or agency and the services provided. Population estimates for subdistricts/districts/regions can also be used to help define target populations if available.
The percent coverage can be determined if both the numerator and denominator are included. Country teams can encourage their partners to consider ways to estimate denominators, using similar methods used in estimating targets.
Age group: 10 years - 14 years, > (greater than) 15 years
Condom type: N/A
Gender: Male, Female
Geographic location: N/A
HIV status: N/A
Pregnancy status: N/A
Service Type: N/A
Time period: N/A
Type of orphan: N/A
Vulnerability status: N/A
This indicator provides information on the total number of unduplicated individuals that received individual-level and/or small-group level interventions. These interventions are based on evidence and/or meet the required minimum standards. The information collected will allow the country and the PEPFAR to assess any changes in risk behaviors as a result of the implemented interventions. The information will also help the country to understand the efficacy and effectiveness of evidence-based interventions and help in further expansion of similar interventions.
