During my eleven weeks in India, I worked on a project entitled, “The Evolution of Community Driven Approaches for the Care and Support of Children Living with HIV: An Empirical Study in Andhra Pradesh.” The goal was to evaluate the services that children living with HIV are receiving, and figure out ways to fill any gaps in services through community driven initiatives. My main task was to create the data collection tools, including a questionnaire for children living with HIV/AIDS, a questionnaire for NGO and government service providers, and focus group guides for caregivers of children living with HIV. After I created and field tested the tools, I was given the opportunity to accompany staff members on site visits to observe focus groups and one-on-one interviews. I also learned how to tabulate the data and start conducting analyses.
