This is an average of the three domain scores below.
The Department of Defense (DoD) received a 65 (D) with transparency and a 74 (C) without transparency due to the lack of explicit details about the DoD’s global HIV and AIDS programs in the four actions that were released publicly in 2022. Most of the actions did not promote sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and lacked transparency. Funding information about the DoD’s global HIV and AIDS programming was unavailable at the time of grading, which also contributed to the actor’s low transparency score in 2022. The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) and Family Planning (FP) domains do not factor into the DoD’s grade because this actor does not work in international MCH or FP.
DoD received a 65 (D) with transparency and a 74 (C) without transparency in the HIV and AIDS domain in 2021. The updates to the HIV in Military Service Members Policy to allow for enlistment of sero-positive Military Service members moderately promoted sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). The other three actions that were graded lacked specific information about the contributions of the DoD’s global HIV and AIDS programs to global health security efforts, the United States government (USG) global water strategy, and the implementation of the Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) Agenda. The lack of detail in the actions along with the unavailability of budget information contributed to the low transparency score in the HIV and AIDS domain in 2022.
