Activity Description

An ad hoc committee will evaluate and document PEPFAR’s investments in human resources for health (HRH) in Rwanda. The purpose of the evaluation is to understand how the CDC PEPFAR funded Ministry of Health HRH Program (funded 2012 – 2017) affected morbidity and mortality outcomes for people living with HIV (PLHIV).

To achieve this aim, using a participatory approach which seeks the views and assessments of relevant stakeholders, the evaluation will, to the extent feasible, specifically address the following:

  1. Describe PEPFAR investments in HRH in Rwanda over time, including its support for the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) efforts to address HRH needs as well as the broader context in which these investments were made.
  2. Describe PEPFAR supported HRH activities in Rwanda in relation to programmatic priorities, outputs and outcomes.
  3. Examine the impact of PEPFAR funding for the HRH Program on HRH outcomes and on patient or population level HIV-related outcomes. This will include comparing national and subnational HIV incidence and prevalence and HIV-related morbidity and mortality before PEPFAR-HRH Program implementation to during and after PEPFAR-HRH Program implementation, using data from baseline and repeat HIV surveys as wellas other available data sources.
  4. Provide recommendations to inform future HRH investments that support PLHIV and to advance PEPFAR's mission.
