Dr Kari Hartwig reports that "Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) Foundation's "Secure the Future" (STF) program staff and the regional Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) recognized the need to build the organisational capacity of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), working in HIV/AIDS, in three areas -- management, leadership and governance. Consequently, the virtual NGO Institute was conceived as an 18-month pilot initiative and launched in five countries -- Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Swaziland and South Africa. STF requested Yale's Monitoring and Evaluation team to lead an external evaluation of the pilot initiative: to assess the concept, progress and structure and make recommendations regarding its continuance."
