The presentation will discuss the baseline survey of the USAID-funded STEPS OVC project in Zambia, which implements OVC care and support interventions in all districts. The objective of the study was to provide information on OVC well-being as a first step in assessing program impact. This study provides the most comprehensive data on OVC well-being in Zambia, calling for programming around food security, household economic strengthening, child protection, school retention, psychosocial support, and interventions to increase the age of sexual debut.
