Orphans & Vulnerable ChildrenOrphans and Vulnerable Children Programs (OVC)

MUWRP also supports activities that improve the identification and provision of care and treatment services to Kayunga District’s population of orphans and vulnerable children. Toward this aim, MUWRP supports a mobile clinical/counseling follow-up partner program which provides community based outreach, support, clinical care and training for Kayunga District’s OVC’s, their families, and the community.

Currently, this OVC program provides comprehensive services to 454 HIV+ pediatrics and their families, and 50 of these OVCs are supported with school fees.  Each year, this partner program successfully conducted 24 community sensitizations in Kayunga District to promote HIV education and treatment as well as to combat HIV stigma and discrimination.
