Measure Evaluation Capacity Building Specialist, commenting on Iris Group's technical assistance services, 2013

"After having the opportunity to consult with the team before the [gender and HIV] assessment, I am very impressed; I think this demonstrates an excellent assessment, and these highlights provide a really helpful overview to understanding gender dynamics in the region from a practical perspective. I really like the framework that was taken in the assessment and strategic positions (i.e., considering access, capacity, data). I flagged that the team noted it was also a challenge to cover each key population, including PLHIV, analyzing separately for men and women, and this makes sense; however, from a programmatic perspective, this analysis gives me a more complete picture, while many studies I read do not. Good job!"
