|Publisher||U.S. Agency for International Development|
The principal goal of the Tanzania AIDS Project (TAP) is to build the capacity of indigenous
nongovernmental organizations (NGO) to implement HIV/AIDS preventive education activities
and to provide a source of support to people with HIV/AIDS. The Midterm Review (MTR) of
TAP, carried out at the request of the Office of Population, Health and Nutrition of USAID's
Mission in Tanzania, responds to USAID/Tanzania's (USAID/T) defined need to ". . .
periodically examine and review the extent to which the Project (TAP) is functioning according
to its prescribed goals and objectives . . . .' and to assess TAP's progress related to Intermediate
Result Two of USAID/T's strategic plan: "Increased knowledge of and access to HIV/AIDS
information and services."
TAP was initiated in June 1993 as a five-year project (1993 to 1998). It was supported by a
USAID budget of US$20 million and a core budget of US$1.6 million from Family Health
International's (FHI) initial AIDS Control and Prevention Project (AIDSCAP) cooperative
agreement. This cooperative agreement was later incorporated into the AIDSCAP contract to
support activities from September 1, 1994 to April 1997. TAP's central Dar es Salaam
management office consisted of a Project Services Unit (PSU) and a Social Marketing Unit
(SMU). PSU activities were managed by FHI; SMU activities were largely under the direction of
Population Services International (PSI), a subcontract under the larger FHI/AIDSCAP Project.
TAP also included a bilateral grant to the National AIDS Control Program (NACP) to assist with
condom distribution and the overall coordination of the NACP.
The evaluation conducted by the MTR team responds to USAID/T's Scope of Work (SOW) that
focuses on a review of TAP's progress in eight technical areas:
|»||Tanzania - Demographic and Health Survey 1996|
|»||Tanzania - Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices Survey 1994|
