Join MEASURE Evaluation on May 24 at 9:00am EDT for a webinar presenting findings from an activity assessing the cost of case management in orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) programs across six countries.
USAID and PEPFAR are supporting the Zambia Family (ZAMFAM) project to strengthen comprehensive, integrated service delivery and support to children living with, affected by, or vulnerable to HIV/AIDS (OVC) in the Lusaka, Copperbelt, Southern, and Central Provinces of Zambia.
The study explores the experiences of volunteer community care workers working with HIV-affected families, participating in laughter therapy. Laughter therapy is being used as an intervention to positively influence individuals experiencing various forms of emotional distress.
Programs for orphans and vulnerable children need to know who most needs help. MEASURE Evaluation used population surveys to develop national and subnational estimates of children (including orphans and co-resident children) who live with at least one HIV-positive adult.
This study used baseline data from the Orphaned and Separated Children’s Assessment Related to their Health and Well-Being Project to examine whether risky sexual behaviors and sexual exploitation in orphaned adolescents differed between family-based and institutional care environments.
