This fact sheet provides an introduction to how MEASURE Evaluation is working to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children by providing much-needed data about OVC programs and populations to the countries and organizations implementing these projects. There are four major components to MEASURE Evaluation’s OVC work: 1) targeted evaluations of existing programs; 2) examinations of behavioral habits and other characteristics of at-risk populations; 3) a new toolkit, the Child Status Index, to aid OVC programs; and 4) providing mapping of OVC populations in relation to available aid organizations, health centers, and other locations.
