The 4Children OVC project in Lesotho has introduced case conferencing approach as part of its direct service delivery to vulnerable children.  A case conference is a planned meeting that brings together all the different actors who have a role in supporting a vulnerable child or children and families.  This case study outlines what case conferencing is within this program, and why and how it is being introduced into the OVC project and nationally.  This case study will be of interest to other program implementers, who are using a case management approach, to illustrate how case conferencing is working and what potential opportunities this approach poses.
