Site Improvement Monitoring System

Metadata Updated: February 23, 2022

SIMS is a tablet based site visit software used for PEPFAR funded activities. Technically, it is composed of mobile data collection tablets running COTS software (where GH fills in the question protocol); secondly compiling and storing the data in the AIDnet environment in a MySQL database; thirdly transfer of the data on a quarterly basis to PEPFAR's DATUM system. The goal of PEPFAR's Site Improvement Through Monitoring System (SIMS) is to increase the impact of PEPFAR programs on the HIV epidemic through standardized monitoring of the quality of PEPFAR support at the site level (e.g., health facility; ward, district, etc.), focusing on key program area elements. SIMS aims to systematize and broaden ongoing PEPFAR site monitoring processes and improve documentation of this oversight; this is accomplished through administration of standard tools that assess adherence to PEPFAR standards of care and service delivery, as well as within entities that support and guide service delivery.
