he #UPROOT Youth-led Scorecards were developed to measure the progress achieved by countries to End AIDS by 2030, and particularly on the issues that matter and affect young people the most.
The first phase of the #UPROOT Youth-led Scorecards ran from 2017 until the end of 2020. After the first phase, the scorecards were assessed, and the methodology updated in a process that engaged youth networks that were involved in the first phase. The new methodology is currently being piloted in seven countries by national youth-led networks.
The #UPROOT Scorecard is a community-led monitoring tool that is facilitated and implemented by young people for young people. The tool gathers data (qualitative and quantitative) through a consensus process with young people in all their diversity to measure progress in the HIV response for young people. The first iteration of the scorecard was linked to commitments in the 2016 Political Declaration on HIV; the updated scorecard more broadly focuses on the areas required for ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.
The #UPROOT Scorecards provide useful information on what are areas of progress and the main challenges and gaps to achieve the commitments on young people, established in the 2016 Political Declaration. The scorecards are intended to provide strategic information to inform and ignite advocacy movements at the national level to hold governments accountable.
The #UPROOT Scorecard process is designed so that any youth-led organisation can implement it, virtually or in-person. The process is designed to include and capture the voices of young people in all our diversity. The PACT, as a global coalition of youth-led and youth-serving organisations, is happy to play a key guiding role in the implementation of the scorecards.
