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).
