  • Evaluation Of USAID/UGANDA Faith Based HIV/AIDS Program

    The Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU) is a consortium of five traditional faiths in Uganda including Church of Uganda, Catholic Secretariat, Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, Orthodox Church and the Seventh Day Adventist Union. It was formed in 2001 to enhance coordination, joint cooperation and coherence of effort towards mutually identified social and economic challenges. IRCU also works with Pentecostal and other independent churches through their umbrella network, the Born Again Faiths Federation (BAFFE). Since 2001, USAID/Uganda has been working in partnership with IRCU to expand access to essential HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services through faith based organizations.

  • Mainstreaming and ACCELERATING HIV prevention in Faith Communities

    Over the years Kenya has been cited by UNAIDS as one of the few countries in sub-Saharan Africa with clear signs of sustained reduction in HIV prevalence. There has been a noted decline of prevalence from a high of 14.1% in 1990 to 6.3% among the 15-49 year old group in 2008-9 . Nonetheless new infections have remained constantly high across the same period. A national survey in 2008/9 estimated a total of 132,000 adults and 34,000 paediatric new infections. In addition, evidence from a Mode of Transmission study conducted in 2008 established that Men and women who engage in casual

  • "What Works for Women and Girls In HIV & AIDS Programming” National Training Workshop Kigali, Rwanda

    Women’s and girls’ vulnerability to HIV infection stems from a greater biological risk that is compounded by gender inequalities, violations of women’s human rights, including violence, and, for some women, criminalization and marginalization. One of the barriers to effective planning and programming for women and girls has been a lack of knowledge about what to do and “what works.” The result of these challenges has been an urgent need to develop and scale up strategies to address the needs of women and girls in the global AIDS response and to support women as agents of change.

"What Works for Women and Girls In HIV & AIDS Programming” National Training Workshop Kigali, Rwanda

 

Executive Summary


 

Women’s and girls’ vulnerability to HIV infection stems from a greater biological risk that is compounded by gender inequalities, violations of women’s human rights, including violence, and, for some women, criminalization and marginalization.One of the barriers to effective planning and programming for women and girls has been a lack of knowledge about what to do and “what works.”  The result of these challenges has been an urgent need to develop and scale up strategies to address the needs of women and girls in the global AIDS response and to support women as agents of change. To do this effectively, there is need for evidence. The purpose of What Works for Women and Girls: Evidence for HIV & AIDS Interventions is to provide the evidence necessary to inform country-level programming.  The purpose of what works for women has been to compile and summarize the base of evidence to support successful interventions in HIV programming for women and girls.
 

The Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa (OSIEA) together with the Technical Support Facility (TSF) of The Centre for African and Family Studies (CAFS) developed this course with the aim of providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved implementing HIV & AIDS Program interventions that work or which are promising from evidence of successful interventions. Participants will acquire tools required for the appropriate identification and successful design and implementation of these programmes at country-level programming.
 

This three day training is a culmination of extensive review, writing and pre-testing that helped to fine tune the content, methodology and training approach for better delivery. All participants were actively involved in the nine training sessions. Participant evaluation shows satisfaction with the facilitators and their training approach with a promise of replicating the lessons and success stories from the training in their respective programmes.
 

The Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa (OSIEA) together with the Technical Support Facility (TSF) of The Centre for African and Family Studies (CAFS) developed this course with the aim of providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved implementing HIV & AIDS Program interventions that work or which are promising from evidence of successful interventions. It is hoped that those who participate in the trainings will acquire new skills and knowledge for identification and successful design and implementation of women and girls friendly interventions.
 

This national three day training came as a result of a planning for way forward that emerged from a regional workshop held in Uganda. From the regional training, it emerged that measuring "what works" can be complicated since the outcomes and impacts of interventions depend on a number of factors - most of these are context specific both at institutional and at national levels. Key inclusion criteria of cases in the compendium include the requirement for an intervention to have had an outcome, or outcomes which have been evaluated for effectiveness. However, for programs to be replicated and to work at scale optimally, a number of conditions need to be met.

 

These Includes:

 

  • The need to ensure processes of evaluation and documentation of successful interventions is a continuous process both within implementing agencies and at country level.
     
  • Implementing agencies need to have access to the available knowledge base or catalogue as well as awareness on approaches that work.
     
  • Frontline agencies should have capacity to replicate and implement what works
