The Second Multisectoral STI/HIV/AIDS Prevention Project aims at supporting the Government of Madagascar's efforts to promote a multi-sectoral response to the HIV/AIDS crisis and to contain the spread of HIV/AIDS on its territory.
In this context, and in line with the recommendations of the December 2008 mid-term review as well as the April and October 2011 supervision missions, the restructuring includes: (a) eliminating the Fund for STI/HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care-Taking which was not effective in delivering key interventions to target populations, (b) increasing the health sector response by scaling-up contracting with non-government organizations (NGOs) for delivery of services directly to target populations, and (c) strengthening monitoring and evaluation (M&E) including better aligning project activities to intermediate and outcome indicators.
In addition, the project closing date will be extended by one year to December 31, 2012 in order to consolidate achievements and measure the results of proposed changes.
