In July 2006, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance launched a three-year project on Expanding the Role of Networks of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Uganda. The project, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Uganda, sought to increase the involvement of people living with HIV/AIDS (PHA) in the HIV/AIDS response and to improve access to and utilization of prevention, treatment, care, and support services for PHA households. USAID/Uganda commissioned an evaluation of the project’s design, strategies, and performance in order to improve its implementation and learn from its successes and challenges. The study was a cross-sectional descriptive and analytical process evaluation employing both rapid participatory assessment and appraisal techniques. It utilized mixed methodologies in data collection, including a desk review, 113 key informant interviews, and 16 focus group discussions. The evaluation was conducted in 11 project districts. This final evaluation report includes the main findings and recommendations.
