Nepal is considered a low prevalence country. Prevention efforts have focused on sub-populations who are more vulnerable than the general population, including migrant workers. Nepal has faced continuous political strife, including armed conflict in the recent past. The economy has slowed down as a result. Nepal was one of the countries chosen to be part of the International HIV/AIDS Workplace Education Programme supported by the US Department of Labor (USDOL) and implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO). The project was planned to run from May 2004 to December 2007 with a budget of US$ 418,594. The programme aimed to contribute to the prevention of HIV in the world of work; the enhancement of workplace protection and the reduction of the adverse consequences of HIV on social, labour, and economic development. This final evaluation was undertaken to assess the activities of the project and the extent to which the objectives of the project have been achieved. Based on this, the evaluation makes recommendations to the ILO, the donor, and the national stakeholders on the sustainability and future effectiveness of project interventions. The methodology of the evaluation included document reviews, visits to target enterprises and interaction with key stakeholders.
