Harnessing Data to Prevent HIV among Adolescent Girls and Young Women – DREAMS Innovation Challenge Technical Brief


Over the last decade, substantial advances have been made in data collection and visualization technologies used to inform HIV prevention, treatment, and care globally, and particularly in eastern and southern Africa. Despite these advances, parallel data collection and storage systems, and data quality, accessibility, and use challenges persist. Gender- and age disaggregated data to pinpoint the most vulnerable populations, locate areas with high transmission levels, and identify inequities and bottlenecks in services as well as success points in care, are often lacking.

The DREAMS Innovation Challenge, with support from the Millennium Challenge Corporation, launched Data4DREAMS to seek investment opportunities to unlock datasets, fill gaps about adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), and improve data accessibility and use to inform policy and programs at the local and subnational levels.
