Audit of USAID/West Africa’s HIV/AIDS Activities in Côte d’Ivoire.
Fiscal Year: 2011
Audit Report Available: Yes
Côte d’Ivoire has the highest national HIV prevalence in West Africa, estimated at 3.9 percent among adults (UNAIDS 2008), with both HIV-1 and HIV-2 viruses present. In 2001, the government created a specific ministry to coordinate the national HIV/AIDS response and mobilize national and international resources. PEPFAR is the main donor supporting services for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Côte d’Ivoire, and the country received more than $24.3 million in FY 2004, $44.4 million in FY 2005, $46.6 million in FY 2006, $84.4 million in FY 2007, $120.5 million in FY 2008, and $124.8 million in FY 2009.
In 2010, OIG conducted an audit covering about 25 percent of USAID/West Africa’s implementing partners in Côte d’Ivoire. The audit identified significant issues, including allegations of fraud, and made about 25 recommendations.
The mission in Côte d’Ivoire believes that audits of other implementing partners will be beneficial to its HIV/AIDS program. For the FY 2011 audit, the implementing partners selected will include Supply Chain Management System, Abt Associates, Infant & Young Child Nutrition, the QED Group LLC, and Geneva Global.
This audit will determine whether USAID/West Africa’s HIV/AIDS selected implementing partners are increasing the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and antiretroviral therapy services to reduce the HIV prevalence rate in Côte d’Ivoire.
