Link to teaching case: 


This three part case involves a broad, complex health project, funded by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and implemented as a collaboration between Japanese and Thai teams. Students confront the tension between the teams' differing perspectives on how best and most quickly to advance care and prevention of HIV/AIDS in a critical region. Underlying that tension is the more fundamental issue of balancing response to local initiatives against keeping a project on track toward its original objectives. As they follow the project through a major change of direction and observe its impact, students must determine how to weigh differing inputs into writing an evaluation.
