To support harmonization and alignment challenges by assessing strengths and effectiveness of partnerships in the national AIDS reponse. This systematic information gathering and analysis helps to put together a picture at country level of the quality of the partnerships in the AIDS response, which then catalyses a dialogue on the strengths and weaknesses, and can help countries move forward in a more harmonized way. The tool is used to map stakeholders in countries and assess the strengths and weaknesses of their engagement with the national AIDS response. CHAT aims to inspire a more inclusive national response through a survey process which first maps the various stakeholders involved in the national response and then through structured interviews with national and international partners establishes how well the national partners are engaged and how harmonized the international players are.
