Evaluating HIV/AIDS Prevention Projects: A Manual for Nongovernmental Organizations
Evaluation allows study or program implementors to identify successful strategies, modify or discontinue interventions not yielding desired results, share findings with programs in other countries or regions, provide donors with evidence of the results of their investment, and demonstrate their interest in accountability. The purpose of this manual is to demystify the evaluation process, especially for staff who are not specialized in evaluation techniques. This manual will guide users in both designing and implementing evaluaitons of HIV/AIDS prevention projects. The principal audience for this manual is nongovernmental organizations, who deal with their own set of problems, advantages and challenges compared to other public health stakeholders, yet who all want to slow and stop the spread of HIV and AIDS.
