Abstract


  • A national AIDS program evaluation system has been applied

    to the ranking of the performance of involved public health

    organizations in China since 2007. The system provides quantitative

    performance comparison information based on automatic

    mining of the data stored in a unified web-based national

    information system, China AIDS Comprehensive Response

    Information Management System (the CRIMS). Hence,

    the quality of the AIDS program evaluation system is directly

    related to the data quality in the CRIMS. This study aims to

    evaluate the performance of the AIDS program evaluation

    system. The research method is qualitative interview of public

    health practitioners in Jiangxi Province. The public health

    practitioners believed that the introduction and ongoing usage

    of the CRIMS has significantly transformed the practice of

    AIDS prevention and control. They believed that the AIDS

    program evaluation system has brought in increased accountability

    of public health. They suggested that the accuracy and

    completeness of AIDS program evaluation needs to go beyond

    the data from the CRIMS. Further research will continue to

    identify the unknown factors that undermine the performance

    of AIDS programs in China.
