IOM Outlines Strategy for U.S. Global HIV/AIDS Program Assessment
July 9, 2010
An Institutes of Medicine report outlines the organization's strategic approach to the evaluation of U.S. global HIV/AIDS programs -- an assessment mandated by the reauthorization of PEPFAR in 2008. According to the report, the IOM will begin the evaluation "in 2010 and issue a report with findings and recommendations in 2012." Major elements of the evaluation include: assessing PEPFAR's contribution to changes in health impact, "assessing the implementation and effects of program components" and providing guidance to "maximize the potential for programs to have a future positive health impact" (7/7). More information on the IOM report is available on Kaiser's Policy Tracker tool (7/7).
