We take an innovative approach to saving lives –

and to measuring its impact.

Empowerment is at the heart of what we do, and our rigorous monitoring, evaluation and learning work aims to engage the people we work with to assess the effectiveness of the projects we implement.

By regularly reviewing what we do and how we do it, we are confident that we can deliver the highest quality, pioneering work with the greatest positive impact on our participants. Ultimately our aim is to turn learning into action – allowing us to effect sustainable change at individual, group and societal levels.

In addition to using conventional approaches to measuring our impact – for example, through surveys or interviews – we also use a unique set of participatory approaches inspired by our methodology to measure changes in participant attitudes, skills and behaviours. We have found that these approaches tend to be more accurate and comprehensive in measuring these areas of change than more conventional methods of evaluation.

We invite you to explore the impact of our work in our reports library below, which contains recent – and mostly external – evaluations across our programmes and thematic areas of work.

We also offer training in our innovative approaches to measuring change. If your organisation is interested in finding out more, please contact our UK office.

I am convinced your approach is the best to help in the prevention against HIV/AIDS.
