This end-of-programme evaluation report presents findings from a two-stage assessment of the HIV Prevention Programme.
The first stage of the assessment comprised measuring impacts, employing both quantitative and qualitative approaches. This resulted in the submission of a draft Indicators Status Report that showed progress along programme components. The second stage comprised a field visit by the evaluator where impact data were considered and, coupled with further information collection around programme effectiveness, efficiency, relevance and sustainability, were used to prepare this evaluation report. This end-of-programme evaluation report represents an integration of findings from both of these phases.
The evaluation has found that there have been a number of important, positive impacts that suggest progress along many of the objectives of the programme. In the context of Zimbabwe at the time this is an important accomplishment. However, it is unlikely that the programme approach and the way in which the programme has been implemented will result in a wide range of long-term impacts in the programme areas.
