What the evaluation found

Recommendations and responses

Considering the release of the Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework, which set the future of the integrated STBBI program, including HIV, the following recommendations and responses also apply to the Horizontal Evaluation of the Federal Initiative to Address HIV/AIDS in Canada.

1. Determine how federal investments will contribute to the goals outlined in the Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework for Action, including reducing STBBI-related stigma and discrimination, and aligning investments with those populations with the highest burden of STBBI. Communicate this to external stakeholders and Canadians.

Response: Develop and implement the Government of Canada’s Action Plan on STBBI that will outline the actions that will be undertaken by FI partners and other Government of Canada departments to contribute to the goals of the Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework.

2. Explore partnerships and mechanisms to facilitate the dissemination and uptake of STBBI-related knowledge products.

Response: Develop a strategy that outlines options and recommendations to enhance and facilitate the uptake of STBBI related knowledge products, including targeted activities for different stakeholder groups such as primary care providers, and identify key stakeholders/partners who could support the development and mobilization of key products.

3. Enhance the use of performance information by simplifying indicators within the current performance measurement strategy to allow for annual reporting of results.

Response: Review the existing STBBI performance measurement strategy to align with the Government of Canada’s Action Plan on STBBI and the agreed upon FPT STBBI Indicators Framework.
