C-

This is an average of the three domain scores below.

YEAR 2018

Department of Defense

The Department of Defense received a 72 (C-) with transparency and a 81 (B-) without transparency. The grade is based on one HIV and AIDS-related directive, which indicates progress within this domain. However, DoD received a low transparency score because budget and programmatic data were largely unavailable beyond the one directive.

B-

HIV & AIDS

 

The Department of Defense received a 72 (C-) with transparency and a 81 (B-) without transparency based on one directive that signifies progress within this domain. The directive allows DoD to continue incorporating HIV and AIDS treatment and prevention into their work with foreign militaries. It is unclear whether the implementation of this directive is efficacious, but it is specific and nuanced. The disbursed funds for HIV and AIDS programs through DoD are not publicly available, which contributed to this actor’s low transparency grade.

The CHANGE data index grades government agencies on policies and funding impacting family planning, maternal and child health, and HIV & AIDS foreign assistance.

2018 DoD HIV/AIDS Prevention Program to Support Foreign Militaries
This directive discusses the DoD HIV and AIDS Prevention Program and its efforts to protect foreign armed forces from the threat of HIV and AIDS. The program provides funding for the development of programs and interventions to protect foreign nation armed forces from HIV/AIDS. This directive was originally written in 2013 and was revised in 2018 to extend it indefinitely. By doing so, this directive allows DoD to continue minimizing the threat of HIV and AIDS among the U.S. and foreign militaries. This directive is responsive to need, evidence-based and human rights based; however, it does not discuss gender norms which are particularly relevant in the armed forces.
