February 20, 2013

In an email alert on Wednesday, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies (IOM) released a new "Evaluation of PEPFAR" report. "PEPFAR has saved and improved the lives of millions of people; supported HIV prevention, care, and treatment; strengthened systems; and engaged with partner countries to facilitate HIV policy and planning for sustainable responses to their epidemic," according to the alert, which notes, "The IOM evaluation drew upon a variety of data sources, including quantitative data, extensive document review, and primary qualitative data collection through more than 400 interviews, including some site visits, with diverse stakeholders in 13 PEPFAR partner countries, at PEPFAR's headquarters, and at other institutions and agencies involved in the global HIV response" (2/20).
