The World Bank in collaboration with DFID and the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development launched an evaluation exercise in 2009 to assess the results achieved by community responses to HIV and AIDS. The primary objective of this effort is to build a more robust pool of evidence on the impact and added value of community-based activities and actions. This Brief, one of a series from different African countries, outlines the findings in Senegal of an evaluation aimed at assessing whether CBO programs are an effective way of increasing voluntary HIV/AIDS testing rates and/or changing the behavior of individuals who test positive and whether the manner in which sensitization programs are delivered affect outcomes.
