Strategic Approach to the Evaluation of Programs Implemented Under the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde U.S. Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008


The world has grappled with the HIV/AIDS pandemic for three decades. International aid organizations and national governments are investing more money than ever to mount a response, especially in developing countries. The U.S. is one of the largest supporters of the global response to HIV/AIDS. The Lantos-Hyde Act of 2008 reauthorized U.S. global HIV/AIDS programs and mandated that the IOM assess the progress of these programs and evaluate their impact on health. This report outlines the IOM’s strategic approach for this evaluation. The IOM will conduct the evaluation starting in 2010 and issue a report with findings and recommendations in 2012.
