The global HIV and AIDS epidemic has affected sub-Saharan Africa more than any other region in the world. AIDS deaths in sub-Saharan Africa account for 72% of AIDS deaths worldwide (UNAIDS, 2006a). As a result, the number of children who have been orphaned or otherwise made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS is also highest in this region. Despite the influx of programs and policies in the last decade to address this crisis, very little evidence is available as to the impact and effectiveness of these programs. In an attempt to fill this knowledge gap, MEASURE Evaluation is undertaking a targeted evaluation of four programs for orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) in four unique settings in Kenya and Tanzania. The targeted evaluation includes household surveys, focus group discussions, a costing analysis and in-depth case studies of the selected programs.
