One of four strategic evaluations related to WFP's shift from food aid to food assistance, this evaluation assesses how Country Offices have adapted to changing needs and the factors affecting those changes. Country Offices are at the front line of translating organizational goals into action.

The evaluation found many strategic changes are being made, affecting all aspects of WFP. Experienced and dedicated staff are actively working to make the changes a success. At the same time, the change process is still at a formative stage and the foundational elements need strengthening.

Apart from the grave public health concerns, the impact of HIV and AIDS upon productive members of society, and increasingly women and children, has major and long-term effects on human, social and economic development. It also has direct and indirect consequences on agricultural and production capacity, and ultimately food security.

This independent evaluation considered how effective WFP’s initiatives to provide food and nutritional support to individuals and families affected by food insecurity and HIV and AIDS have been.

Case studies from Uganda, Tanzania, Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso and the report’s wide-ranging recommendations will help shape future WFP programming and policy setting.
