Review of HIV/AIDS response project
Options undertook the end of programme evaluation of the DFID-funded Strengthening the HIV/AIDS Response in Zambia (STARZ) programme. The STARZ programme was initiated to strengthen the nascent National HIV/AIDS/STI/TB Council. The end of programme evaluation provided an opportunity to evaluate progress achieved during implementation, particularly focusing on whether the project achieved its purpose and to assess the relevance and effectiveness of the project over its lifetime.
As well as assessing the project’s impact, the evaluation also documented lessons learned, developed case studies of success stories and made recommendations for future DFID support to Zambia’s HIV/AIDS sub sector.
