NASTAD works closely with the National STI/HIV/AIDS Program in Guatemala since 2014 to monitor and improve their HIV case reporting infrastructure and overall data quality. NASTAD is currently transitioning the countries case notification system to a web-based platform while standardizing the information collected across reporting sites with a vision of unifying reporting systems into a single, more accessible, information source. As a natural component of surveillance systems strengthening, technical assistant on data analysis, management, and reporting is also actively provided. 

In March 2018, NASTAD conducted a data quality workshop in Guatemala with different health department members from sectors across Guatemala City. The workshop highlighted the dimensions of good data quality and explored the limitations of the current surveillance system infrastructure in the country.
