This 90-minute session will focus on understanding the types of data needed to conduct prevention needs assessments and progress monitoring. We will focus on gathering local data, and on the partners needed to find and use data effectively. We will also discuss ways you can increase your organization’s, coalition’s, and/or community’s capacity to understand and use local data effectively. The training is the first in a series of three highly interactive sessions focused on identifying challenges in data collection, data sharing, and community capacity.
