Welcome to the Ministry of Gender, Labour & Social Development (MGLSD) Management Information System for Orphans and other Vulnerable children (OVCMIS).
The main objective of the OVCMIS is to measure progress towards achieving the goal of the National Strategic Program Plan of OVC Interventions (NSPPI). The OVC National Implementation Unit (OVCNIU) in the Ministry coordinates the national effort for OVC. Over 4,000 non-government, civil society, faith-based and community organizations support this national effort by providing care and support for OVC. The OVCMIS is a central hub for OVC related data in Uganda.
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 system is accessed on: http://ovcmis.mglsd.go.ug
