This is an average of the three domain scores below.

YEAR 2019

Department of Defense

The Department of Defense (DoD) received a 71 (C-) with transparency and an 81 (B-) without transparency due to the unavailability of policy and budget information related to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and low transparency of funding data related to HIV and AIDS. The Maternal and Child Health and Family Planning domains do not factor into the DoD grade because the DoD does not work in international maternal and child health or family planning.

B-

HIV & AIDS

 

The DoD received a 71 (C-) with transparency and an 81 (B-) without transparency due to the unavailability of budget information and low transparency in 2019. The DoD also did not release any policy or technical guidance related to HIV and AIDS in 2019.

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

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