Country Response Information System : overview of the system and its plan of establishment
Improved information and informed analysis are critical for the development of expanded national responses to AIDS. Some countries have developed HIV surveillance systems and countries are increasingly collecting information on resources allocated for AIDS programmes and projects. Responding to the needs at the national and global levels for improved information and analysis, UNAIDS has embarked on an ambitious plan to establish an information system to support national AIDS responses. This document describes the historical development of the Country Response Information System (CRIS), and the related activities undertaken by UNAIDS in 2002 and 2003.
