Program Evaluation Branch

The Program Evaluation Branch (PEB) is responsible for monitoring and evaluation of CDC-funded HIV prevention programs implemented by health departments and community-based organizations in the United States. Branch staff also conduct special projects and report on HIV prevention performance indicators using program and surveillance data.

PEB supports CDC’s National HIV Prevention Program Monitoring and Evaluation (NHM&E) system to collect standardized information on CDC-funded programmatic activities including HIV testing, partner services, linkage to care, and risk reduction interventions.  

PEB routinely monitors HIV program processes and client outcomes for specific CDC-funded Funded Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). These FOAs are awarded to local and state health departments and, also, community-based organizations.
