Monitoring the Outcomes of Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programs in Kenya: Findings from 2016–2018 Panel Data: Walter Reed Program/Henry M. Jackson Foundation Medical Research International Abstract:

This report presents findings from a panel study of beneficiary households receiving services from the Walter Reed Program/Henry M. Jackson Foundation Medical Research International (WRP/HJFMRI) project. WRP/HJFMRI is a United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) project funded through the United States Department of Defense. The WRP/HJFMRI orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) program began in 2004 and operates in Bomet, Kericho, and Narok Counties in the Rift Valley region of Kenya. Key OVC program areas and intervention components of the project are education support, household economic strengthening, healthcare and nutrition, shelter, psychosocial care and support, and child protection services. This study was undertaken by MEASURE Evaluation—a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and PEPFAR—at the request of PEPFAR and the USAID Kenya mission. This 2016–2018 panel study was designed to meet PEPFAR’s monitoring, evaluation, and reporting requirements, which include standard indicators. PEPFAR encourages the collection of data on these indicators every two years.

The panel study compared results from Round 1 (2016) and Round 2 (2018, with the same households). It measured changes in the well-being of OVC beneficiaries over the two years using nine essential survey indicators required by PEPFAR and two supplemental indicators.
