Progress Update [Latest submission Year 4: October 14 – September 15]

  • PR believes that the overall performance of PR in year 4 have been average (self rated at B1). The first half of the year was better with the new finance officer, revision of SR reporting format, better grant coordination between PR and SR and completion of year 3 audit. However the second half was marred with turnovers and conflicting priorities with new grant negotiations. The following are the key achievements for Year 4.
  • Design of Phase II of CAT-S study: The design of phase II of the Study was completed in October 2015. PR organized a study design consultation workshop and a consultation for finalization for study sites, sample size and tools. The study protocol was submitted to respective ethical review committees in December and is currently approved by authorities in Pakistan and Indonesia, while others are in process of approval.
  • Data visualization cube: The PR has out sourced and is in process of concluding the data visualization web portal, which conducts analysis of phase I CATS data (available at www.apn.biophics.org).
  • Lao PDR Capacity building and treatment as prevention workshop: Two pending workshops for Lao PDR were conducted this reporting period with active participation from the ministry of health, all ART service providers and self help network. Thai network of Positives (TNP+) took lead in organizing the workshop and it was the first time service providers and self-help group shared data and identified next plan of action. APN+ also facilitated development and training of Program Management and Financial Management Manual for APLHIV Laos.
  • M&E: Reporting quality and timeliness of SRs have continued to improve in Year 4. PR also conducted 6 Field visits during year 4.
  • Community documentations: SRs have conducted additional 11 Community documentation and 4 Policy reviews in year 4. Quality of such documentations has improved since the last reporting period.

Next reporting due Nov 15, 2016
