The objectives of the review were to revise the programme log frame to reflect the outcome of the 2011 Bilateral AIDS Review decision not to continue with the Total War on AIDS component; to review the progress towards milestones and targets and make recommendations on any changes that should be made as the programme enters its final year.
Overall, solid progress has been made by the remaining components towards the purpose of supporting the effective implementation of Kenya’s National AIDS Strategic Plan (KNASP) through harmonised approaches.
Recommendations for overcoming remaining challenges include:
- The programme should prioritise support to the Government of Kenya and National Aids Control Council to identify and scale up sustainable, cost effective approaches to HIV and AIDS prevention and care and further develop its plans for developing sustainable funding mechanisms.
- The UN Joint Programme should consolidate the progress made towards results-based programming by conceptualising and communicating the Kenya National AIDS Strategic Plan results logic framework clearly at each stage from work plan to programme reporting.
- Though it is probably not necessary or useful at this stage of the programme to create a new separate DFID programme supervision structure, existing mechanisms and processes should be strengthened to improve communication between the separate components.
