Dr Saroj Pachauri, Distinguished Scholar, Polulation Council, shares her views
In your opinion, what role can knowledge management systems like the IndiaHIV portal play in India’s National AIDS Control Programme or the world? How do they inform policy and action towards a sustained response?
Knowledge management systems are of critical importance for continually providing new information to multiple stakeholders engaged in developing national programmes. The availability of new surveillance data and research findings through the IndiaHIV portal would serve to inform policy, and would be a tremendous asset for national programming.
