Total Funding: $0

Project Search Johns Hopkins University was funded in COP09 and COP10 (at a total of 1,000,000 (500,000 at each COP cycle) to implement an evaluation of the impact on behavior change and risk reduction of three PEPFAR funded implementing mechanisms around the reduction of multiple and concurrent partner reduction campaigns. JHU implemented the mid-term evaluation of the project in FY11 and released the findings of the evaluation. Overall the finding from the evaluation were positive, with changes in reported behaviors around the number of people counseled and tested and condom use. Additional analysis of the mid-term results are in process and additional secondary analysis will be released in November 2011. The end-of-project evaluation will take place in early FY13. Because of the pipeline from the last two fiscal years, there is no new funding for this activity in FY 12.

Funding for Sexual Prevention: Other Sexual Prevention (HVOP): $0

Project Search Johns Hopkins University was funded in COP09 and COP10 (at a total of 1,000,000 (500,000 at each COP cycle) to implement basic program evaluation activities that will primarily be focused on investigating the impact of general population abstinence and/or be faithful (AB), other prevention (OP) and most at risk populations (MARP) prevention intervention activities that USG Mozambique will be beginning in FY 2010. The primary objectives of this multi-prevention program evaluation are to quantify and qualify the impact of the newly developed prevention interventions on behavior change, normative behaviors, beliefs and attitudes that impact behavior change and attitudes towards HIV and sexual transmission practices for general populations and for MARP populations. Another primary goal of this program evaluation will be develop rigrous costing methodologies that will allow the USG and the government of Mozambique to have better estimates and projections around prevention interventions.

This activity will also provide data around multiple concurrent partnership reduction and other quantitative data related to general population and MARP activities, that will be used for baseline, target and ongoing program monitoring.

The evaluation will be a multi-province evaluation. The evaluation will first field test various methodological and logistical questions for feasibility. The evaluation may also include interviews and focus group sessions with participants of the multiple different types of prevention interventions that took place and would provide comparative impacts of different types of interventions with different populations.
