Uganda

MEASURE Evaluation works with Uganda’s Ministry of Health and partners to combat policy and programmatic challenges and strengthen the country’s M&E system.

Uganda’s Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development (MGLSD) oversees programs that support orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). To this end, the ministry, with support from USAID and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed a vulnerability index (VI) tool to measure the vulnerability of OVC and their households.

MEASURE Evaluation conducted an assessment of the VI tool to determine its usefulness, feasibility, and the quality of the data it generates, and made recommendations for improvements. Our work now is focused on:

  • Meeting with the relevant technical working group (TWG) to gain consensus on information needs of the MGLSD and how the VI will collect data to meet those needs;
  • Determining what “vulnerable” means so that the tool is appropriately designed to meet the national program needs;
  • Revising the VI and creating materials to support implementation of the revised tool – this includes a user guide, training manual, and the training of trainers to use the manual.
