MEASURE Evaluation has produced a set of tools for measuring quantitative child outcomes and caregiver/household outcomes in programs for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). This tool kit was developed with the support of the PEPFAR OVC technical working group to:

  • standardize the production of population-level child and caregiver well-being data beyond what is available from routine surveys,
  • produce actionable data to inform programs and enable mid-course corrections, and
  • enable comparative assessments of child and caregiver well-being and household economic status across a diverse set of interventions and geographical regions.
