ABSTRACT
The Women's HIV/AIDS Resources Project (WHARP) Partnership utilizes collective resources to facilitate a bi-directional exchange of information between South African and U.S. HIV/AIDS Community-based organizations (CBO's). WHARP also serves as a model for establishing community-based collaborations among non-traditional organizations in an international setting. The evaluation of the WHARP project focused on the relationships between members of the partnership, highlights the accomplished/unaccomplished goals and objectives and the "Lessons Learned" from this partnership.
