The project SIDAPES aims at setting up an information system for planning, coordination, monitoring and evaluation of the HIV/AIDS response in Guinea.
SIDAPES stands for:
P = Planification
E = √Čvaluation
S = Surveillance & Suivi
SIDAPES and its communication platform enable an exchange of experience between the different actors involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Guinea and a harmonisation of the activities. Furthermore, this innovative system is combinable with the SNIS (the national health information system), the CRIS (the M&E system developed by UNAIDS) and other information systems in Guinea. It is available for free and can be used in any type of project.
