Data Hub Assistant Data Analyst
The Data Hub (website, data analysis team, and the database) is the key source and important support for countries and regional partners in Asia and the Pacific by demonstrating a strong link from Evidence to Action, strengthening networking and partnership around strategic information, and consolidating expertise in related areas. The most prominent value-added feature is its unique data analysis capacity demonstrated through advanced analysis and intelligent visuals that provide effective advocacy messages to stakeholders through website, app, and key presentations.
The Data Hub team collates and synthesizes available data from country cross-sectional surveys, prevalence studies, behavioral surveillance and other national and global reports, to capture data and strategic information on vulnerability, risk behaviors, HIV infection/disease prevalence, HIV expenditure and national responses. The Data Hub regional MS Access offline database now has more than 150 000 data points for over 2 000 indicators and sub indicators from over 1 500 unique sources. The Data Hub complements the standardized Global AIDS Monitoring (GAM) and health sector indicators available through UNAIDS and WHO databases with additional thematic and sub-national information, both epidemiological and response-related. It has a strong focus on key populations at higher risk and women and children, with gender-and age-disaggregated data where available. These data are crucial for understanding of highly geographically localized epidemics among different sub-populations at higher risk in Asia-Pacific countries, and are necessary to design cost-effective targeted programmes and interventions.
The Data Hub team also interacts directly with national and regional partners so that it can respond specifically to regional needs in generating and disseminating strategic information, and in raising interest in data use. This approach has increased the utility of the Data Hub considerably as the data products are produced for particular purposes as required by partners, and then posted on the website. In 2008 the site saw less than 200 unique visitors per month, but according to Google Analytics now there are around 3000 unique visitors per month in 2016.
The Data Hub’s web portal, www.aidsdatahub.org, remains the only regional site of its kind, with a large repository of HIV strategic information on 26 countries in Asia-Pacific. An improved and visually eye-catching web design was developed during 2012-2013 to target policymakers with the provision of key regional and country-level HIV facts and messages for advocacy and action on the main landing pages, in addition to the existing detailed data products. Other changes include making the website more user-friendly, with information categorized more logically by key population and thematic area, an online database that mirrors the offline database and allows users to select information and create customized charts online, and a better search function.
With the Data Hub fast becoming one of the region’s most important and popular HIV knowledge tools, there is a larger demand on the team to improve and keep the database and website updated, and to meet the analysis needs of a wide array of different UN and civil society partners. To keep up with this demand, RSTAP requires Assistant Data Analyst to support the work of the Data Hub Analysis Team.
