MSF has received UNITAID grants since 2013. For several financial, operational and opportunistic reasons, the opportunity and adequacy of receiving funds from UNITAID was questioned by the MSF medical and operational directors. In October 2014 the MedOp platform took a decision not to seek any further UNITAID funding for a one-year period-ending in October 2015.

This evaluation was conducted by Nicole Henze on behalf of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalised in November 2015. This publication was produced at the request of MSF MedOp, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Nicole Henze.

This meta-evaluation is based on a review of 16 evaluation conducted by the Vienna Evaluation Unit between 2007 - 2010. The evaluations covered a wide variety of interventions including long-standing HIV or TB programs as well as responses to emergencies such as epidemics or natural disasters.

The project in Lichinga is a vertical program addressing HIV/Aids in one of the northern provinces of Mozambique. The approach of integrating activities in the existing health services is rather new, hence it was felt important to evaluate the current strategy in order to support future planning and draw lessons. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess whether the integration and decentralization strategies are appropriate and efficient in order to reach to overall objective of the project. The evaluation was carried out between Mid May and Mid June 2005, by two evaluators.
