JSI completed a five-year cooperative agreement with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), providing national training and technical assistance to more than 220 community-based organizations and health departments as they use the Program Evaluation Monitoring System (PEMS) to enter data on HIV prevention services provided at the local level.

JSI supported grantees with program monitoring and evaluation strategies, data use, report analysis, and tailored TA plans. JSI was responsible for training new PEMS users at the local level, as well as PEMS administrators and implementation coordinators. In addition, JSI developed evaluation field guides for seven EBI (Effective Behavioral Intervention) and two Public Health Strategies for national deployment.
