Monitoring Outcomes of PEPFAR Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programs in Nigeria: APIN Program 2016 Survey Findings in Lagos State Abstract:

Investment programs to improve the well-being of approximately 17.5 million orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and their households in Nigeria have been substantial, and yet the impact of this investment is uncertain (PEPFAR, 2012). To address this, in 2014, the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) introduced a set of outcome indicators for OVC programs, referred to as Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) Essential Survey Indicators (ESIs), with the requirement that these indicators be collected every two years by a research organization external to the OVC program. These outcome indicators reflect internationally accepted developmental milestones and collectively measure holistic well-being of children over time. This survey used a standard method developed for application across multiple countries to provide measurable indicators on PEPFAR-supported projects that aim to improve the well-being of OVC in Nigeria.

The objective of this survey was to collect the first round of the nine essential outcome indicators for registered active beneficiaries of APIN Public Health Initiatives Lte/Gte. This survey provided the first estimates of the essential outcome indicators and will be repeated at two-year intervals to monitor changes in the well-being of OVC and their caregivers over time. This report shares the findings of the APIN study.
