WHO Releases Report on Role in Supporting 3 by 5 Initiative
June 15, 2006
"Evaluation of WHO's Contribution to '3 by 5'," World Health Organization: The report -- which follows the release of a 2005 report that says WHO missed its 3 by 5 Initiative target of treating three million HIV-positive people in developing countries with antiretroviral drugs by the end of 2005 because of a lack of international cooperation and coordination, as well as a lack of national leadership -- is based on an independent evaluation conducted by six international consultants between August 2005 and January 2006. The report examines the administrative, technical and managerial guidance that WHO provided during the initiative and includes evaluations of three levels of WHO: headquarters, regional offices and country offices. The report identifies future collaboration opportunities between WHO and partners and gives recommendations for the "way forward" (Nemes et al., "Evaluation of WHO's Contribution to '3 by 5'", 3/30).
