Abstract:

A lack of comprehensive knowledge about HIV/AIDS and sexual reproductive health (SRH), financial insecurity, gender-based violence, and other risk factors can leave students of higher education institutions (HEIs), especially women, more vulnerable to HIV infection. It is therefore important to consider the specific needs of this population group when designing and implementing HIV interventions. In Ethiopia, the Health Policy Project (HPP) is supporting the Federal HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Office and HEIs to prioritize and target HIV interventions in HEI settings. As part of this effort, HPP assisted the government's HEI Partnership sub-Forum against HIV/AIDS with developing a Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation Framework for HIV/AIDS and SRH interventions in HEIs. Establishing a standardized system for planning, monitoring, and evaluating interventions will facilitate the generation and use of high-quality program-related data to inform decision making, thus helping to boost program effectiveness. Training and implementation of the framework has begun, and the next step will be to evaluate its effectiveness and standardization across HEIs in Ethiopia.
