Orphans and Vulnerable Children Survey Toolkit Abstract:

The U.S. government and other investors in programs to improve the well-being of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) want to know the impact of their funding.

Meaningful evaluation requires measurable results. But existing surveys used to collect internationally comparable data on children—the Demographic and Health Survey, for example—don’t capture information at the OVC program level, nor do they capture all of the core indicators of an OVC program’s success.

New indicators and tools developed by MEASURE Evaluation, with support from the OVC technical working group of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), simplify and standardize the data needed to set measurable goals for an OVC intervention. Using them, program designers and administrators can now answer questions fundamental to the planning and evaluation of OVC programs worldwide. Learn more in a fact sheet on evaluating orphans and vulnerable children outcomes and listen to a webinar recording on the resources.
