Summary "While communities have played a large role in the HIV/AIDS response, their contributions and innovative approaches to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support have not always been the focus of systematic and rigorous evaluations. To address this gap, seventeen analytical pieces were undertaken including evaluations in Burkina Faso, India, Kenya, Lesotho, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Zimbabwe over a three -year period (early 2009 to early 2012) to build a robust pool of evidence on the effects of community based activities and programs. ... Evaluation findings indicate that investments in communities have produced significant results at the community level, which contribute to outcomes at the national level, all while leveraging limited resources."--Publisher's website
