Session Abstract (150 words): 

Legacy evaluations are designed to take place after program implementation is completed, yielding valuable information about sustainability, reach, and influence on other programs. Circumstances led MEASURE Evaluation to conduct a legacy evaluation in 2017 and 2018 of the Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS), which was implemented in six countries in eastern and sub-Saharan Africa between 2012 and 2016. PHFS was a collaboration among the United States President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), UNICEF, and the World Health Organization (WHO). Its goal was to accelerate the uptake of WHO’s Guidelines on HIV and Infant Feeding, 2010. PHFS was designed to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV and increase child survival through improvements in service delivery, continuous quality improvement, and stakeholder engagement. In participating PHFS facilities, HIV-free survival among infants and children was not only a goal, it was a reality.
