Preface.

This is the Project Performance Assessment Report (PPAR) for the First Population and AIDS Control Project in Chad. This project was financed through IDA Credit No. 2692 in the amount of US$20.4 million equivalent (13.9 million SDR) with a planned government and community contributions of US$1.3 million and US$1.0 million, respectively, and projected cofinancing by KfW and UNFPA in the respective amounts of US$4.4 million and US$0.1 million for a total cost of US$27.2 million. The credit was approved on March 23, 1995, became effective on September 8, 1995, and closed on December 31, 2001, after a six-month extension. The credit was fully disbursed.

The findings of this assessment are based on an Operations Evaluation Department (OED) mission to Chad in February 2004. The mission met in N'Djamena with: authorities and staff of the Ministry of Plan, Development and Cooperation (including the Project Coordination Team); the Ministry of Public Health; other public sector agencies implementing population and HIV/AIDS activities; the Social Marketing Association (AMASOT); the Social Fund (FOSAP); representatives of civil society; and key donors supporting population and HIV/AIDS activities in Chad. The mission also visited the cities (and prefectures) of Mongo (Guera), Mao (Kanem), Bongor (MayoKebbi), and Moundou (Logone Occidental), interviewing public sector and civil society actors and beneficiaries and visiting selected facilities, research/academic institutions, and community-based projects. Key documentary sources consulted include: (a) World Bank project files; and (b) project-related reporting and evaluation, epidemiological data, studies and research on population and HIV/AIDS, much of it generated in Chad.

This PPAR is one of six conducted on the "first generation" of the Bank's HIV/AIDS projects, as background for a larger OED evaluation of the development effectiveness of World Bank's assistance for fighting the AIDS epidemic. In light of that purpose, relatively more material has been presented in this "enhanced" PPAR than is the OED standard.

The OED mission gratefully acknowledges all those who made time for interviews and provided documents and information.

Following standard OED procedures, copies of the draft PPAR will be sent to the relevant government officials and agencies for their review and comments. Comments received are incorporated into the PPAR and presented in Annex F.
