The OVCMIS is based on a conceptual M&E framework that links the NEEDS and characteristics of OVC and their households, the SUPPLY or PROVISION OF SERVICES by national and local government institutions as well as donors, non-government and civil society organizations (CSOs), and the UTILIZATION of these services. The assumption is that if the NEEDS of OVC and vulnerable households are identified; there is adequate SERVICE PROVISION meeting National Quality Standards and such services are being UTILIZED by OVC and vulnerable households, this should lead to healthy practices short to medium term, and in the long term to improved quality of life for OVC and vulnerable households.
The OVCMIS includes the UNAIDS National OVC Policy & Planning Effort Index for Uganda as well as other OVC indicators developed during a consultative process with key stakeholders in the country. These OVC indicators measure OVC needs, service provision and utilization using a number of data sources. In addition, the indicators cut across the 10 Core Program Areas of OVC programming identified in the NSPPI and are classified at four different levels - national, local government, service provider, and household levels.
The systems also houses three modules. The title of each module is self-descriptive and the module has the data collection tool as well as detailed data elements collected using the tool. The tool is the source of data for the related OVC indicators. The modules are:
