Evaluation of the UN Joint Programme on AIDS in Mali

31 October 2022

The evaluation was carried out and managed in close collaboration with the UNAIDS Country Office in Mali and members of the UN Joint Team on AIDS. The evaluation confirmed the strong alignment of the Joint Programme's strategic directions with national priorities and overarching strategic frameworks. Progress has been made in coordination. However, more needs to be done regarding geographic and population targeting, and to fully communicate the contribution of the Joint Programme. The Joint Programme has implemented innovative and high-impact catalytic actions, but many activities do not yet have a sustainability strategy. Gender and human rights aspects are generally considered. Partnerships with civil society remain a priority to reduce vulnerabilities. The evaluation is expected to help optimize the support of the Joint Programme to the national HIV response.
