Case management tools for OVC programs in Lesotho

Management Sciences for Health (MSH), BLC Project

Over the course of the five years of the USAID-funded Building Local Capacity for Delivery of HIV Services in Southern Africa Project (BLC), BLC and its partner organizations have developed a series of tools and resources that have proven effective in strengthening the OVC response.

Through the use if these innovative tools, BLC partners have access to the most up-to-date and accurate information, work collaboratively, improve their organizational and technical capacity, and reach the most vulnerable children. Lesotho is implementing OVC programming in Lesotho, and has reached more than 92,000 orphans and vulnerable children with services.

BLC's case management tools include:

  • Beneficiary assessments
  • Service forms
  • Referral forms
