MONASO – Five-Year Strategic Plan: Mid-Term Evaluation of the Mozambican HIV Network
Client – MONASO
Location – Mozambique
Year – 2006 – 2007
Time – 6 months
MONASO (Mozambican Network of Organizations working on AIDS) was created in 1993 with the aim of coordinating the actions of member organizations working in the area of HIV / AIDS.
This study was an evaluation of MONASO’s 2005-2009 strategic program.
The main objective of the mid-term evaluation was to assess the impact of strategic actions, and to what extent were the results successful and to identify lessons learned.
Then, propose changes to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation system. The assessment also considered the need to change or revise current strategies in order to make the plan more up-to-date and effective.
The evaluation reported a need for change in relation to:
a) MONASO coordination and management;
b) Institutional capacity building and training activities;
c) Communication and Research;
d) Advocacy and lobbying;
e) Monitoring and Evaluation;
f) Institutional development and financial management.
The implementation of changes proved to be a success. The number of members grew from 500 members to 1421, as members found MONASO’s services to be attractive and justified the payment of their membership fees.
