Community-based HIV/AIDS programs funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care AIDS Bureau are required to complete the web-based OCHART twice each year.
The data and information provided through OCHART give funders the information they need to:
- review the range of services provided
- identify emerging issues and trends
- inform planning
- account for use of public resources.
OCHART data is analyzed and the View from the Front Lines report is produced annually. This provincial summary gives community-based programs information about services, trends and client needs that they can use to improve existing services and plan new ones.
