The Coordinating Comprehensive Care for Children (4Children) project traced a sample of graduated OVC and their primary caregivers to assess their well-being and to understand the perceived changes in OVC well-being following graduation from a PEPFAR-funded OVC program.

This tracer study provides evidence on the state of and perceived changes in child and caregiver well-being since graduation. The study also contributes to the national and global evidence on the OVC household graduation approaches, its effect on the well-being of graduated households and implications for future programming.
