An external evaluation
To provide the U.S Congress with an independent evaluation of PEPFAR.
This evaluation consisted of a literature review, review and analysis of budgetary and programmatic data, discussions with relevant parties, and (from Oct 2005 Feb 2006) visits by small delegations from the team to 13 of PEPFARs 15 focus countries.
The Institute of Medicine’s external evaluation of highlights PEPFAR’s achievements, but argues that the initiative’s programmes impede donor partners’ efforts to coordinate and harmonise their activities.
The report concludes that PEPFARs one size fits all approach does not work, and evidence-based strategies should guide its interventions instead.
