|Enhancing the Greater Involvement of People Living or affected by HIV/AIDS (GIPA) in sub-Saharan Africa (UNAIDS, 2000, 28 p.)|
The uniqueness of the design of this pilot initiative was the participatory development of a monitoring and evaluation framework. A technical mission visited both countries and worked with the project's main stakeholders to develop three major elements of the initiative: i) a monitoring and evaluation framework; ii) a process that will enable those involved to identify and meet the training and support needs of the Project; and iii) a decision-making process for the use and monitoring of the project's micro-grants facility.
Using the process facilitation approach as outlined in the UNDP manual, the facilitators worked with key players to achieve the following outcomes:
i) a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for each country;
ii) Guidelines for the Management and Operations of the Micro-Grants Facility;
iii) a document on Training and Support Strategies, including checklists for follow-up activities.
