OVCsupport.org’s mission is to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children through connecting the global community and providing the most up-to-date information on HIV and other adversities.
OVCsupport.org was developed in 2004 by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance (UK) with support from USAID. The site began as a resource database, but as interest in the site increased, stakeholders recognized the potential to increase the scope of the site and expanded it to include updated technical content, news and events. The site is currently managed by the Adolescents and Children, HIV incidence reduction, Empowerment, and Virus Elimination (ACHIEVE) consortium of partners, led by Pact.
ACHIEVE is a five-year, USAID-funded global cooperative agreement. ACHIEVE can provide either short term technical assistance or service delivery, which will help priority PEPFAR countries achieve and maintain HIV epidemic control among pregnant and breastfeeding (PBF) women, infants, children, and youth. The two objectives of the project are to:
- Attain and sustain HIV epidemic control among at-risk and hard to reach pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants, children, and youth, as well as to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS and prevent HIV transmission among these populations; and
- Support the transition of prime funding and implementation to capable local partners in order to meet the PEPFAR goal of 70% of funding to local partners.
ACHIEVE is a consortium of leading organizations in the global HIV/AIDS response and organizational capacity strengthening, led by Pact:
Prior to management by ACHIEVE, OVCsupport.org was managed by the AIDSTAR-Two project (2010), the Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) project (2014), and the Coordinating Comprehensive Care for Children (4Children) project (until April 2020).
