Measuring Up: HIV-Related Advocacy Evaluation Training Pack

International HIV/AIDS Alliance

TOOL DESCRIPTION


The PDFs of this tool are:

1. A guide for facilitators
2. A guide for learners

Aim:
The guides aim to: (1) help users to identify and confront the challenges faced by community-based organizations evaluating HIV-related advocacy; (2) introduce new thinking for designing advocacy evaluations; (3) give users the opportunity to apply some aspects of the evaluation design process to their specific contexts (4) make users aware that advocacy evaluation is a fast-growing and evolving field, with a large number of publications on advocacy evaluation design, approaches and methods available via the Internet and summarized in the resources section of the learner’s guide.

Type of Document:
A pack of two documents, a guide for facilitators, and a guide for learners.

Audience Intended:
The guide is a resource for leaders, advocacy and monitoring and evaluation staff of civil society organizations (including networks) who are involved in designing, implementing and assessing advocacy projects at different levels – international, national and sub-national. Leaders of networks of key populations are likely to find this guide particularly relevant and helpful. These leaders may use the facilitators guide to run participatory workshops with NGOs/CBOs responding to HIV/AIDS, and ostensibly with other interested advocates.

Population Experiencing Stigma and/or Discrimination:
PLHIV

Stigma and/or Discrimination:
Both.

Assess and/or Address:
Both.

Implementation:
The facilitator’s guide suggests activities for a three-day skills-building workshop and one-day learner’s workshop that aim to introduce the content and key messages of the learner’s guide. The workshop aims to build on the existing capacity of civil society organization staff evaluating their advocacy work on HIV-related issues in resource-limited settings.

Comments:
Mainly focused on evaluation of advocacy—very little directly on stigma/discrimination (though that may be a part of the advocacy efforts being evaluated).
