|Samenvatting||INTRODUCTION: Road construction workers at the Ethiopian Roads Authority are at higher risk of acquiring HIV infection due to a number of influencing factors such as migration, age (15-59), and males staying in a camp which could facilitate the practice of high risk behaviour. This thesis analyses the program from 2004 to 2011.|
OBJECTIVE: To critically analyse the Ethiopian Roads Authority Workplace HIV/AIDS prevention and control program in order to give
recommendations. METHODOLOGY: the evaluation framework from EC and WHO was adapted to analyse the program. Also literature, reports, and official documents of the organization were used for the analysis.
FINDINGS: The program objectives were relevant; however, with limitations. The needs of the target population were not assessed so far. Efficiency of the program with regard to human resources was found to be weak. Similarly the assignment of sub-contractors to the project sites was limited to cover all the road projects due to different problems. Awareness raising activities and training were also found to be limited. The results of the program were not enough to judge the effectiveness but some gains were stated; inclusion of HIV activities in contract agreement. CONCLUSION: From the findings the ERA HIV /AIDS prevention and control program is relevant; However, efficiency was very limited for some activities and effectiveness could not be assessed due to absence of relevant
information. RECOMMENDATION: Evaluating effectiveness of the program, improve documentation and reporting, studies assessing HIV situation of the sector, and identifying needs of the target population are recommended.
