This institutional assessment of UNAIDS (specifically its Secretariat) covers the period from 2014 through mid- 2016. Applying the MOPAN 3.0 methodology, the assessment considers organisational systems, practices and behaviours, as well as the results UNAIDS achieves. The assessment considers five performance areas: four relate to organisational effectiveness (strategic management, operational management, relationship management and performance management) and the fifth relates to development effectiveness (results). It assesses UNAIDS’s performance against a framework of key indicators and associated micro-indicators that comprise the standards that characterise an effective multilateral organisation, and gives an overview of its performance trajectory. MOPAN last assessed UNAIDS in 2012.
