M EMBERSHIP Facilitators: Beverly Nyberg (PEPFAR/OGAC-Dept of State), Ronnie Lovich (SCF-US), Priscilla Akwara (UNICEF/NYHQ) Member organizations: UNICEF (NYHQ, ESARO, Zimbabwe CO) UNAIDS PEPFAR (OGAC,USAID) Save the Children MEASURE DHS World Vision Plan USA Population Council
WORK PLAN : FOUR MAJOR ACTIVITIES 1. Review of internationally used OVC indicators. 2. Development of progress report on children affected by HIV/AIDS 3. Estimating numbers of vulnerable children 4. Sharing & dissemination of OVC M&E documents
P ROGRESS & ACHIEVEMENTS
A CTIVITY 1: R EVIEW OF INTERNATIONALLY USED OVC INDICATORS. 1. Review of DHS & MICS Both DHS & MICS found the chronic illness and OVC module difficult to implement WG held 3 conference calls to review and discuss possibilities of improving the OVC questions in DHS/MICS Consensus to exclude most OVC specific questions until better modifications are developed. Request to expand ages re: education and birth registration 2. Review of UNGASS OVC indicators – Yet to be completed.
A CTIVITY 2: D EVELOPMENT OF PROGRESS REPORT ON CHILDREN AFFECTED BY HIV/AIDS Consultants completed work during Q2, 2009 Decision made to update data with 2009 SOWC Will be published in Q4, 2009
A CTIVITY 3: E STIMATING NUMBERS OF VULNERABLE CHILDREN Two day meeting (July 2008) to examine possible models for estimating all vulnerable children and vulnerable children due to HIV/AIDS. Meeting and calls identified multiple ways of defining/understanding vulnerable children. Consensus to develop 2 different models: 1. Number of children at risk of being vulnerable - based on risk factors (UNICEF). 2. Number of children currently in need of additional support – based on current status (USG-PEPFAR). Both models are to be presented at the Oct. meeting where strengths, weaknesses and uses of each model will be discussed.
