2) 25 to 30% of the network members are civil society representatives (NGOs and representatives of target groups and affected communities).

5) 40 professionals trained (4 Train-the-Trainer courses) to deliver courses on counselling in HIV/STI/sexual health in medical high schools and colleges in 1 model region (Germany-Poland) M25.

6) Sensitisation among medical universities in other selected cross-border model regions on training curriculum in communication and counselling competence for medical students.  

Specific objective 2: Bridge research to practice:
To advance by 2012 the state of research and evidence of HIV/STIs risks through outline of comparable risk behavioural indicators among vulnerable groups and to bridge findings to effective HIV combination prevention

Process indicators

Output indicators
Outcome indicators
9) Sentinel sites in 4 MS countries are recruited, instruments updated, study protocol finalized and implemented.
11) 3 main relevant findings (from both second generation behaviour surveillance and HIV/STI sentinel surveillance) are formulated as research report in order to be discussed and updated by the regional network committees (WP4) in M23-24.
12) The updated action plans of at least 70% of partners participating in WP5 integrate prevention concepts based on research findings; communication of these to local health policy makers in M32.
10) Study protocol for second generation surveillance among sex workers prepared, instruments (both quantitative and qualitative) designed.


Specific objective 3: Early diagnostic:

Process indicators
Output indicators
Outcome indicators
13) 3 models for early HIV/STIs diagnostic are peer reviewed by other experts and assessed by the partners participating in WP6 in M15. 14) 20 professionals exchange expertise in different models of early HIV/STIs diagnostic for most-at-risk groups (SWs, IDUs, Roma) in M17. 15) 10% increase in rates of HIV/STIs diagnostic service utilization by clients from most-at-risk groups among the participating services in WP6 in M32.
Specific objective 4: Referral and treatment systems:
To augment by mid 2012 the country-specific evidence on treatment and care of HIV and co-infections and to enhance interlinks in referral systems for diagnostic, treatment and care of STIs, HIV/AIDS and co-infections
Process indicators Output indicators Outcome indicators
16) Instrument and procedure developed for stocktaking survey on country-specific conditions in diagnostic and treatment of HIV and Co-infections, including mapping and organigram in M10. 17) 15 HIV-treatment specialists participate in recurrent workshop and expert on-site visits on Management of HIV Co-infections in Germany in M18 and M20. 19) The elaborated guidelines for referral and management of HIV Co-infections are applied by 70% of partners participating in WP7 for improved linkages between treatment systems in M28.
  18) Country-specific guidelines for referral and management of HIV Co-infections are drawn up (D9) in M26.  
Specific objective 5: Participatory approaches:
To improve HIV/STIs in two-and-a half-years period community based prevention and sexual health for ethnic minorities (e.g. ROMA) and migrant groups through capacity building in participatory prevention models
Prozess indicators Output indicators Outcome indicators
20) Different models of community based HIV prevention for ethnic minorities and migrant groups are peer reviewed by other experts and assessed by partners participating in WP8 in M13. 22) 20 multipliers are trained (2 training seminars, D10) on 3 good practice models of participatory HIV prevention among ethnic minority/migrant groups in M15 and M23. 23) Training programmes in community HIV prevention among ethnic minority and migrant groups are available, developed by 70% of partners participating in WP8 based on the published manual in M34.
21) Relevant ethnic community members and migrant groups are involved in needs assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of interventions on ongoing basis in the partner countries.    
Specific objective 6: Quality assurance in youth prevention:
To enhance accountability and evidence-based evaluation in youth HIV/STIs prevention, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programmes by end of 2011
Process indicators
Output indicators Outcome indicators
24) Rapid Assessment survey on HIV/AIDS prevention and sexual health promotion measures for youth takes place in 70% of the partner countries/regions participating in WP9. 26) Draw up of guidelines for evaluation of various methods and measures of youth prevention in M3; 28) 70% of partners participating in WP9 apply the online youth HIV prevention evaluation tool to improve accountability of youth prevention models in M24
25) In an evaluation period (M4 to M10) based on the guidelines for quality assurance of youth prevention the partners outline different youth prevention models, which are reviewed by other experts and presented by satellite conference (D11) in M7 27) 30 youth prevention workers and peer educators from 10 countries trained (D11) in quality improvement in HIV/STI prevention and SRHR in M7
