In support of the Global Fund’s New Funding Model, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) worked in coordination with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Health Policy Project (HPP) to provide technical assistance to select high-impact countries. HPP supported the South Africa National AIDS Council (SANAC) and provincial health authorities in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) on a proposal to map estimated HIV prevalence using routinely collected facility-level data and other related data in KZN province and the metro municipality of eThekwini (formerly known as Durban). These efforts were intended to help inform the country’s Concept Note submission, scheduled for June 2015. In addition to providing technical assistance in support of the analysis, HPP documented the methodology (Judice and Datar, 2014)—adapted from Dr. Frank Tanser’s work in Mpumalanga Province—so that SANAC might include a request to replicate this analysis in multiple municipalities throughout the country as part of the funding application to the Global Fund.This report documents the methodology, data sources, and statistical methods used to map and analyze routine data to examine HIV variation at subnational levels.
