Geospatial analysis of epidemiological and health service data can generate maps of hotspots—locations where HIV prevalence is concentrated—and existing medical and social services and infrastructure. Using this method of data visualization, program planners can easily determine where HIV resources and services are lacking and where they should be deployed to have the greatest impact.

With support from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and in collaboration with the Global Fund, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) is providing technical assistance to ten high-impact countries in Africa and Asia to strengthen their use of geospatial analysis in HIV policymaking and strategic, financial, and program planning. This brief explains how a South African district improved HIV services using maps.
