The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) is a global network of people living with HIV and community activists working to achieve universal access to optimal HIV treatment for those in need. Formed in 2003 ITPC actively advocates for treatment access across the globe through the focus of three strategic pillars:
Watch What Matters is a community monitoring and research initiative that gathers data on access to and quality of HIV treatment globally. It fulfills one of ITPC’s core strategic objectives, to ensure that those in power remain accountable to the communities they serve.
Watch What Matters aims to streamline and standardize treatment access data collected by communities – helping ensure that data is no longer collected in a fragmented way and that it reflects the issues and questions that are most important to people living with and affected by HIV. It relies on a unique model that empowers communities to systematically, routinely collect and analyze qualitative and quantitative data on access barriers and use it to guide advocacy efforts and promote accountability.
