monitor the goals set at the UN General Assembly
Special Session on HIV/AIDS, the Millennium
Development Goals, and strategic goals of the
President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
Currently, the main sources of HIV/AIDS indicators
in the database are the Demographic and Health
Surveys (DHS), the Multiple Indicator Cluster
Surveys (MICS), the Reproductive Health Surveys
(RHS), the Sexual Behavior Surveys (SBS), and
Behavioral Surveillance Surveys (BSS). The
database is designed to be global in scope,
eventually covering all countries for which
