HIV/AIDS assessment in Sub-Saharan Africa : transport projects (English)

AFTTR started incorporating HIV/AIDS activities into its projects from 2000, and initiated this assessment to review the process, results, and challenges of mainstreaming HIV/AIDS prevention activities in the sector. This is not an impact study, but rather an attempt to determine the extent to which the mainstreaming effort reached targeted populations, the lessons learned, and the outlook for the future, using a more flexible methodology. The three major lessons learned are: a) the need to dialog with the HIV/AIDS teams in the client countries to accelerate the process of endorsing, disseminating, and operationalizing the policies; b) establishing simple and clear M&E procedures within the national strategic framework; and c) developing evidence-based programs which will help for a better understand of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the transport sector. Improvements are required in the following areas - project management, selection of an appropriate mix of interventions, performance evaluation, and linkages with other service providers. Information exchange and dissemination of best practices should be a priority in the next phase of the project.
