Remarks by: Dr. Olavi Elo, Team Leader

1. Introduction and Overview
Dear Mr. Minister, Dear Members of the National Council, Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Evaluation Team, it is with a sense of urgency that I present the final results of the Comprehensive External Evaluation of the National Response to AIDS.
Given the complexity of this evaluation - which is the most comprehensive evaluation of a national AIDS programme ever conducted - the process of drafting this report took longer than expected. With the support of 32 members of the Evaluation Team, we have worked for five months to compile the results of the evaluation into a consolidated report. We have synthesized the data from interviews with over 360 people in Ukraine, as well the results of research and summary reports for over 120 technical issues.
