IOM’s HIV and SRHR Knows No Borders (KNB) project is part of a regional programme of work on HIV/AIDS and SRHR in Southern Africa (2016-2020). In 2019, MDF Training and Consultancy was commissioned by the donor to conduct an evaluation of the five projects, including KNB, that together comprise the regional programme.
