This workshop is held in collaboration with Regional Capacity Building Partners, which held a similar one in Lusaka, Zambia, May 26-30 2008. It recognizes that in recent years, HIV and AIDS responses have grown significantly, but the impact of such program is seldom adequately measured, documented or shared with others. The need to demonstrate impact and change in the quality of lives of people is becoming a critical concern for donors, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders. According to workshop planners, the capacity to assess impact on an ongoing basis and make the results of such assessments part of the continuous process of planning and implementing HIV and AIDS programs is still weak in many developing countries.
