PEPFAR and other donors recognize the need to coordinate and align their investments,
frameworks, and strategies to maximize the impact in the countries they support.
Initiated by PEPFAR, the DUC offers the community a way to involve and engage with a multitude
of agencies, organizations, and stakeholders. The community can approach these conversations with
a user-centered design to understand the current landscape. These solutions will be built to be
scalable and sustainable. This collaboration and integration of data will not only drive efficiency,
but also improve patient care and programmatic impact.
The community will engage with and support data managers, epidemiologists, strategic information
advisors, surveillance officers, monitoring and evaluation officers, program managers, health
information system managers, system/database administrators, and data scientists. The stakeholders
engaged will have a diverse geographical and service delivery representation. They will collaborate
and look at these challenges from diverse perspectives and create a comprehensive view of the challenges
and needed solutions.
