Fact Sheet: Evaluating Orphans and  Vulnerable Children Outcomes Abstract:

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 five questions fundamental to the planning and evaluation of OVC programs worldwide:

  • What are the educational, health, protection, and psychosocial characteristics of children and their caregivers in my area?
  • Where do the children most in need of program support live?
  • How many children need services or support?
  • What kinds of support do my program’s registered beneficiaries need, as a group, for their education, health, protection, and psychosocial well-being?
  • Is my program achieving (or did it achieve) the impact I expected on the children and households served?
