Narrative description of project:
The Global Fund’s new funding model introduced in 2013 requires epidemiological and impact assessments as part of the development of “concept notes” that provide the basis for funding applications.
The objectives of this assessment were:
• Objective 1. Describe and assess current national HIV surveillance and vital statistics, with particular attention to their capacity to measure the level of and trends in HIV disease burden (incidence, prevalence, morbidity and mortality).
• Objective 2. Assess the level of, and trends in, HIV disease burden using available surveillance, survey, programmatic and other data.
• Objective 3. Assess causal pathways leading to impact on HIV/AIDS due to programmatic explanations and factors aside from those related to HIV programs.
