At CARE for AIDS, we are committed to monitoring and evaluating our long-term impact on our clients lives. We set out to facilitate change in five key areas for each of our clients. We work to empower clients to be healthy physically, economically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. 

HOW WE MEASURE IMPACT:

Our Monitoring and Evaluation team does in-depth interviews with clients at program intake, program exit, and one year follow-up. To achieve an appropriate sample size, we collect data from 15 of our centers across all of our regions of operation. We collect thousands of data points from over 800 clients each year at various points in time throughout the program. We use this data to ensure our programs are creating sustainable life change.

What we measure:

All client data is self-reported through in-person interviews. We track data related to each client’s physical health, economic health, and emotional health. We believe it should be an industry standard to share both outputs (like number of graduates, salvations, and orphans prevented) as well as outcomes (like change in health over time).

We track clients’ physical health by measuring viral load at intake, exit, and one year follow-up. The lower a client’s viral load, the healthier they are. We also track predictive health data like adherence to medication and hygiene and sanitation practices. Our goal, in pursuit of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 strategy, is for 90% of our clients to have an undetectable or low viral load at program exit.
emotional health.png
We track clients’ emotional health through multiple self-assessment questions, but the most revealing stat related to emotional health is their disclosure status. Clients who have disclosed their HIV status to family and friends show a higher rate of self-confidence and self-acceptance. Our goal is for 70% of our clients to report full disclosure of their status at program exit.
economic health.png
We track multiple data points related to economic health, including employment status, savings practices, and available weekly income. The key economic health metric we track is a client’s membership in a savings group. Savings groups are a great predictor of long-term savings practices and capital access. Our goal is for 100% of our clients to be in a savings group at program exit.

Sustainable Development Goals: As an organization that values holistic impact and strategic partnerships, we are committed to working alongside other NGOs and government agencies to achieve global goals related to public health and international development. Our work directly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals below:

East African Regional Goals: The East African Community (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda) developed Regional Sustainable Development Goals that nest within the United Nations’ goals. The CARE for AIDS program directly supports:

Regional Goal #5: Improved access to health facilities

Target 15: Reduce the rate of HIV/AIDS infection by half by 2030

Target 16: Increase access to ARVs by 20% by 2030




Kenya AIDS Strategic Framework: Kenya developed a country specific AIDS Strategic Framework in 2014. This framework set forth specific goals for adherence, testing, stigma reduction, and special population care. The CARE for AIDS program directly supports the Strategic Frameworks goals 1-3:

  1. Reduce new HIV infections by 75% by 2030

  2. Reduce AIDS related mortality by 25% by 2030

  3. Reduce HIV related stigma and discrimination by 50% by 2030




A case for faith integration in HIV/AIDS care
At CARE for AIDS we are unabashedly faith-based. Not only does our faith inform our work, research shows that integrating spiritual practices into long-term chronic illness care can improve client health outcomes. Want to learn more? Read this literature review from our resident MPH.
