Evaluating the Impact of OVC Programs
The PEPFAR OVC Technical Working Group has supported USAID/MEASURE Evaluation to develop a new orphans and vulnerable children program evaluation tool kit. This tool kit has been developed to support PEPFAR-funded programs and, in large part, to fulfill the aims presented in the USAID Evaluation Policy.
The tool kit includes quantitative child outcomes and caregiver/household outcomes measurement tools designed for use in a survey of children ages 0-17 years and their adult caregivers. The questionnaires are designed to measure changes in child, caregiver and household well-being that can reasonably be attributed to program interventions. Applications of the tools will result in standardized information on child well-being, caregiver well-being and household economic status beyond what is available from routine surveys, and allow Missions and programs to compare measures of well-being across a diverse set of interventions and geographical regions. Tools have been developed through extensive expert consultation, and are aligned to the PEPFAR Guidance for Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programming as well as the US Government Action Plan for Children in Adversity.
