To achieve this the study employed descriptive research method with questionnaires as core instruments of gathering data. six (6) organizations in Kisumu County with beneficiaries of HIV prevention programs were selected from which respondents were picked. Moreover, interviews were conducted for key informants who included representatives from regulating bodies. The collected data was then analyzed using SPSS statistical package to provide percentages and weighted mean as well as correlation and regression analysis results (inferential statistics) as described in this report. Data was collected between July 2018 and October 2018 Study results revealed that compliance and adherence to policy implementation by project staff and other stakeholders has a significant positive contribution to the performance of HIV prevention projects. This conclusion was drawn from rejection of null hypothesis formulated by the researcher stating that policy implementation process has no significant influence on performance of HIV prevention projects. The F ratio was significant with F (1, 181) = 34.273, P=0.00050.05 hence rejection of null hypothesis. To address non-compliance to policy and lack of supportive policies to guideline projects implementation, the study recommended that; the project introduce interventions geared towards championing endorsement and formulation of necessary policies. The project should also develop necessary tools to document policy implementation process.
