The Pacific Islands AIDS Foundation (PIAF), founded in July 2002, is a not-for-profit regional organisation advocating for people living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) in the Pacific Region.
The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) provided core funding support to PIAF from 2003 to July 2010. Total support provided by MFAT to date totals approximately NZ$1.4 million. MFAT commissioned an independent review of core funding support of PIAF.
The review had five objectives:
1. To describe the framework in PIAF’s strategic plan.
2. To assess the relevance of PIAF’s work programme.
3. To assess the organisational capacity and health of PIAF.
4. To determine the effectiveness (outcomes) of PIAF’s work programme.
5. To assess the value for money of PIAF’s work programme.
