Audit of USAID/Zambia’s Gender-Related HIV/AIDS Activities.

Country: Zambia
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes

The Lantos-Hyde Act recognized that women and girls bear the effects of HIV/AIDS disproportionately compared with men.

Accordingly, this legislation requires the new 5-year strategy to address the special needs of women and girls. Built upon the HIV/AIDS program’s initial high-priority gender strategies, the new requirements are intended to (1) increase gender equality in HIV/AIDS services, (2) reduce violence and coercion, (3) address male norms and behavior, (4) increase women’s legal protection, and (5) increase women’s access to income.

These five areas contribute to the U.S. Government’s gender-framework for international HIV/AIDS efforts. USAID/Zambia’s FY 2010 funding for HIV/AIDS activities (excluding amounts for drug procurement) was $109.8 million.

This audit will determine whether selected gender-related HIV/AIDS activities implemented by USAID/Zambia are increasing gender equality in HIV/AIDS services, reducing violence and coercion, addressing men’s norms and behavior, increasing women’s legal protection, and increasing women’s access to income. The audit will also determine whether program results reported by USAID for selected gender-related HIV/AIDS activities were complete and accurate.
