The Analysis and Advocacy (A²) Project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and jointly implemented by Family Health International (FHI), the East-West Center (EWC), and Futures Group. The overall goal of the project is to enhance the effectiveness of HIV and AIDS responses by promoting the use of evidence-based data to direct interventions and resources toward factors driving the HIV epidemic. The project works with numerous in-country organizations at the national and provincial levels, including AIDS control committees, departments of health, and research and epidemiology centers that track the course of the HIV epidemic.
In late 2007, the Regional Development Mission in Asia (RDM/A) requested that an evaluation of the project be carried out in four countries. The evaluation included a review of A² project-related documents, in-country interviews, and interviews with members of the A² regional management team (see Annex 1 for a list of the interviewees). The choice of evaluation consultants was vetted by FHI, Futures Group, and EWC; and the following were selected as part of the evaluation: John Ross of Futures Group (Bangladesh, China, and the region overall); a consultant, David Wilkinson (Thailand); and Anne Jorgensen of CEDPA (Vietnam). This report highlights the identified project successes, challenges, and recommendations for the future in each country.
