1. Recommendation: Communication and dissemination of results The next 6 months of the project should be devoted to the effective dissemination of results, including best practices. The regional dissemination of results could also support the current effort of the NHO to promote the HIV/AIDS national strategy in the regions. The results of the field research are eagerly expected by all stakeholders and should be disseminated widely, through policy briefs and/or seminars. New exit strategy for demonstration projects As detailed above, HPVPI should prepare with each of the demonstration projects an operational exit strategy and should support organisations in their application to funding agencies (local and international). Montenegro cooperation A specific exit strategy for Montenegro should be envisaged in order to facilitate the inclusion of achieved results in the strategy that will be deployed with the GFATM implementation. It is suggested that DFID facilitates the discussion related to the new exit strategy in collaboration with the HPVPI team and the two UNDP offices in Belgrade and Podgorica. HPVPI should continue to work on the access of existing demonstration projects in Montenegro to GFATM funds and in providing possible technical assistance to the GFATM Montenegro team. Co-locating with the NHO for the last 6 months of the project Discussions should be pursued with both NHO, national IPH and the Ministry of Health (including on cost sharing) for phasing the co-location of HPVPI project's team within the NHO office. This early co-location would be the opportunity to "test" collaboration and to refine the type of support needed by the organization before the project ends in March 2007. Donors coordination There was a strong interest by most donors in collaborating with DFID on the future programming and discussions with the Ministry of Health. CIDA expressed a willingness to possibly support NHO in coordination with other donors, although the agency requested more information on the TORs of the NHO. The Dutch embassy representative also showed an interest in more structured cooperation in the area of HIV that could translate into a coalition of donors that could push the HIV agenda with the Ministry of Health. It would be beneficial to have a clearer picture of the future priorities of the EC in the area of health in the next EC multi annual indicative programme, as the EC is bound to become the most significant donor agency in the medium to long term. There might be a specific case for coordination of the different agencies' wider regional policies in the area of HIV/AIDS, as several donors are currently supporting regional programmes (CIDA, SIDA and Dutch gov.).
