The Prevention Section Evaluation Consortium helps monitor and evaluate statewide and local HIV prevention programs, including CBO demonstration projects.  These activities serve to assess and improve the quality of Florida’s HIV prevention services.  

The Evaluation Consortium
The Florida Department of Health, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis Section, Prevention Program established the Evaluation Consortium to enhance its capacity to evaluate Florida’s HIV prevention programs.  The Evaluation Consortium consists of a diverse group of professionals with expertise in evaluation from universities, county health departments, and community-based organizations throughout Florida.  The Evaluation Consortium provides program evaluation guidance and assistance to the program and its partners.

Common Uses of HIV Prevention Program Monitoring and Evaluation
Program monitoring and evaluation is commonly used to assess and improve program implementation methods and program outcomes.  Such outcomes may include changes in participants’ or target populations’:

  • Knowledge of HIV/AIDS
  • Intent to test for HIV
  • Intent to reduce HIV risk behaviors
  • Self-efficacy (e.g., confidence to reduce HIV risk or use a new skill)
  • Communication skills (e.g., condom negotiation)
  • HIV risk behaviors (e.g., number of sex partners, number of unprotected sex acts, number of injection equipment-sharing events)
  • HIV testing behaviors
