As part of its efforts to obtain evidence to inform the public health approach to HIV treatment and prevention, the HIV/AIDS Department of the World Health Organization has developed tools for operational research on topics that have relevance to programmes. The tools include two major parts: 1) A main document which is intended to serve as a basis for formulating research questions and designing an operational research project to address them. The document includes 4 sections: HIV testing and counseling, HIV stigma and discrimination, adherence to antiretrovirals, HIV prevention in the context of scaled-up access to HIV treatment. 2) Data collection instruments cover the listed topics, from which relevant modules can be selected. At present, the following instruments are available: a questionnaire for collecting data from clients at health facilities and a questionnaire for collecting data from health care providers at health facilities.
