OVC MER Strategy – Moving Towards
Outcomes
• New OVC MER strategy is a critical and positive shift toward a
comprehensive, outcomes based strategy for showing impact
• USG investments in OVC programs substantial, but impact mostly
undocumented.
• Challenges to understanding impact: lack of standardized
measures and tools tailored to OVC population & child well-being
• OVC TWG & Measure developed set of core quantitative child
outcomes and caregiver/ household outcomes tools
– Toolkit formed strong foundation to build a new set of indicators and
global strategy when OGAC commissioned a new MER strategy.
– Pilot-tested in Zambia and Nigeria; Translations to French in progress

Specific Shifts in Data Collected
• Emphasize program effectiveness & outcomes
• Reflects 2012 PEPFAR OVC Guidancedevelopmental milestones across ages/stages
• Track coverage: active beneficiaries for OVC
• Track contribution to Continuum of Response
• Elevate core indicators from OVC Survey

REPLACED C1.1.D- OVC_SERV
Number of active beneficiaries served by PEPFAR OVC
programs for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS
Indicator REPLACES Umbrella CARE starting in FY14
Implications:
– Overall intent is comparable to old indicator: Measures coverage
– More specific: uniquely OVC-related vs. overlap with clinical care
– Defines “active beneficiary” as receiving quarterly contact-aligns
with criteria needed to meet direct support definition
– Clarification of who is counted is anticipated to improve quality
of data

Data should be collected continuously as part of service delivery. Data analysis and
review should be done semi-annually, in time for PEPFAR reporting cycles to monitor
progress towards achieving the targets and to identify and correct any data quality
issues.

OVC Level 1 Indicators
Indicator code:
OVC_SERV
Number of active beneficiaries served by PEPFAR OVC
1 programs for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS
Method of Measurement:
The indicator is generated by counting the number of active beneficiaries (children or caregivers) who received at least
one PEPFAR service from facilities and/or community -based organizations (see definition of an ‘active beneficiary’
below). To reduce the burden of counting on organizations providing services, registers with names of children who meet
the criteria for “active beneficiary” are sufficient for generating the number included in this indicator. The types of OVC
programs required to report on this indicator are outlined in the 2012 PEPFAR OVC Guidance and are those designed to
address critical care needs.
Explanation of Numerator:
Active beneficiary is defined as an individual who has received program services in the last three months and who is
scheduled to receive program services at least once every three months, as outlined in program guidelines or standards of
practice. New beneficiaries who only registered in the last quarter will be counted as active even if they have not yet
received services. Partners will report on the number of beneficiaries on their “active” registries. Partners will not be
required to count the number of individuals receiving services at each reporting period.

OVC Level 1 Indicator: OVC_ACC
Number of active beneficiaries receiving support from PEPFAR
OVC programs to access HIV services
• This is a direct output indicator that measures the number of
children and/or caregivers who are referred to and enabled to
access HIV-related services. The data obtained from this
indicator can inform cross-program planning including PMTCT,
pediatric and adult HIV testing, and treatment programs.
• Learning year-2014; Report starting in FY15

Reminder: Distilling core indicators
• Our starting point: 6+1 domains of PEPFAR OVC
programming
• Step 1: Extensive literature search
• Step 2: Gaps (HES, PSS) filled through targeted research
 Result: >600 child/HH wellbeing
questions/indicators
• Step 3: Analysis against 8 criteria
 Result: shorter list of questions for discussion

Highlights of MER Outcomes Package:
Data Collection for Improved Quality
• Biennial (every two years)
• Greater Age Disaggregation – all indicators
• Utilize trained data collections external to
service delivery
– Relieve burden of front line service providers
– Build on capacity of local research institutions
