This is an evaluation of Concern Worldwide's HIV and AIDS Programme in Liberia. It was carried out by an external consultant, supported by Concern staff.
Concern started directly implementing an HIV and AIDS programme in Montserrado, Liberia in 2008 and in Grand Bassa in 2010, building on prior mainstreaming work. The programme has also worked with the partners Eternal Love Winning Africa (ELWA), Light Association, Young Women Organized for Sustainable Development (YWOSD) and, in 2011, the newly formed LIBNEP+. It was planned as a 5 year programme (2008-2012) but was terminated at the end of 2011 due to lack of funding. This document is the final evaluation of the programme.
The evaluation found that "overall Concern Liberia’s HIV and AIDS programme has been an interesting initiative, working in a difficult and changing context. It has some real strengths, as well as some significant weaknesses. Through this work Concern has built a significant profile and reputation for HIV&AIDs work in Liberia. Concern is strongly encouraged to seek further funding to enable the organisation to build on these foundations."
