Field testing a rapid project development method. Tanzania and Honduras: case studies

Aidscaptions. 1996 Jul;3(2):42-5.


PIP: Targeted projects conducted by nongovernmental organizations (NGO) and other local groups form the core of the AIDS Control and Prevention (AIDSCAP) Project's comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention programs in 17 countries. Each of the 465 subprojects is based upon a detailed subagreement outlining the project's objectives, each organization's responsibilities in meeting the objectives, the products to be delivered by the implementing agency, and the indicators for measuring whether the objectives have been met. AIDSCAP country and regional staff work closely with each implementing agency to review and strengthen every subagreement. AIDSCAP's rapid project development method, field tested in Tanzania and Honduras in 1995, accelerated the process by bringing together in one place staff from implementing agencies and AIDSCAP country and regional offices. In so doing, AIDSCAP and its partners were able to write, review, and complete most of the subagreements for each country program in just 2 weeks. The experiences in Tanzania and Honduras are described.
