Case Management for Children Orphaned or Made Vulnerable by HIV

PEPFAR’s OVC programming delivers child-focused, family-centered interventions that seek to improve wellbeing and mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on children and families. This effort involves working in partnership with children and families to identify, plan, and complete a series of actions in an effort to achieve specific goals. This process is typically referred to as case management.

In the context of OVC programs, case management can be understood as the process of identifying vulnerable children and families; assessing their needs and resources; working together to establish specific, realistic objectives and goals and planning actions to achieve objectives and goals; implementing plans through completing specific actions and receiving services; monitoring both the completion of actions (including the receipt of services in a timely, context-sensitive, individualized, and family-centered manner) and progress toward achievement of objectives/goals (e.g., child protection and well-being, including HIV prevention, treatment, and adherence).
