The compendium of indicators covers programmatic areas vital to the intersection of gender and HIV. Each of these programmatic areas includes a number of indicators that may be used at national, regional or programmatic levels. The indicators in the compendium are all either part of existing indicators used in studies or by countries or have been adapted from existing indicators to address the intersection of gender and HIV. The indicators can be measured through existing data collection and information systems (e.g. routine program monitoring, surveys) in most country contexts, though some may require special studies or research. The intended purpose of this compendium is to provide program managers, organizations, and policy makers with a menu of indicators to better “know their HIV epidemic/know their re¬sponse” from a gender perspective in order to strengthen national and subnational stakeholders’ understanding of their HIV epidemic and response from a gender equality perspective, monitor progress towards eliminating gender-based inequities in HIV responses, and monitor and evaluate programs that address specific types of gender equality interven¬tions in the context of HIV.
