IOM Evaluation of PEPFAR

by on March 1, 2013

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recently released the results of its evaluation of PEPFAR. An excerpt from the Report Brief provides a general conclusion of IOM’s findings:

PEPFAR has been globally transformative. Across partner countries, PEPFAR was described as a lifeline, and people credit PEPFAR for restoring hope. The initiative’s future contributions will be informed by its past achievements, but, by necessity, will take a new direction. PEPFAR will gradually cede control, as partner countries take on more central roles in accountability and setting strategic priorities for investment in their HIV response. The pace of transition will vary by nation, but such an evolution in PEPFAR’s mission is vital.

A post on Tomorrow Global provides an overview of the full report, including insight on the importance of monitoring and evaluation.

The full report can be accessed on the IOM web site.

What do you think of the findings from IOM’s evaluation of PEPFAR?
