Final evaluation of the Ethiopia HIV prevention and impact reduction programme

Final evaluation of the Ethiopia HIV prevention and impact reduction programme

10 August 2015

This report outlines the objectives and successes of this programme which ran from 2010-2013 in Ethiopia. Four local partner organisations collaborated with Concern to implement the programme: PRO PRIDE, Mekdim Ethiopia National Association (MENA), Timret Le Hiwot Organization (TLH) and Organization for Social Services for AIDS (OSSA).

The report identifies the key lessons learned throughout the programme and recommends best practice for future programmes.

Overall, some improvements have been observed in HIV- and Aids-related knowledge among the general adult population and in the uptake of HIV testing among the most-at-risk group. However, the end-line survey results concluded that knowledge about HIV prevention is still low in the areas covered by the programme both in Kalu and Addis Ababa (49 percent in Kalu and 69 percent in Addis Ababa) and misconceptions about how HIV could be transmitted are high among the community (about 47 percent of the respondents have demonstrated some form of misconceptions about how HIV could be transmitted and a further 41 percent failed to correctly identify all three ways for preventing sexual transmission of HIV).
