Abstract

As the research by Auvert, et al. (2005) showed, “Male circumcision provides a degree of protection against acquiring HIV infection, equivalent to what a vaccine of high efficacy would have achieved” (Auvert, Taljaard, Lagarde, Sobngwi-Tambekou, Sitta & Puren, 2005). This paper discusses the study that was done on the Voluntarily Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) campaign launched by Drew Cares International (DCI)| Rwanda. The purpose of the study was to analyze the existing Monitoring and Evaluation system for HIV prevention programs in Drew Cares International. The data gathering methods used were sites observations in order to get first hand information on the clinic’s recording system; and the internal record documents that DCI uses to submit data into PEPFAR recording system. These record systems contain substantial details of every service provided by DCI. The result of the study was a personalized M&IE plan that will help DCI to monitor and evaluate internally its programs. This paper will then provide details of the new Monitoring and Impact Evaluation designed for the Male Circumcision campaign as well as other HIV prevention programs offered by DCI.
