HIV/AIDS Asia Regional Program (HAARP): Outcomes and DFAT lessons assessment reports
Summary of publication
The HIV/AIDS Asia Regional Program (HAARP) was an eight year (2007-2015) $37.8 million program, designed to provide HIV harm reduction services to people who inject drugs and their partners in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS). HAARP was implemented in China, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Lao PDR.
In March 2015, an external program assessment report was finalised. This report documents the highest-level regional and country program outcomes and DFAT lessons over HAARP's lifetime. The reports intend to identify program achievements; key organisational strengths and challenges as well as serve as a constructive learning document to inform future harm-reduction policy and program interventions.
The reports recognise the key regional and country level achievements of HAARP, as well as forward-thinking approach, and concludes that HAARP made important steps forward for HIV harm-reduction policy and program interventions. The report also highlights obstacles and missed opportunities. Due to budget constraints, HAARP ended six months earlier than scheduled. The report documents the impact of the early closure, but notes the contribution of a planned exit strategy and sustainability achievements in this context.
