Uganda. Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development. 2006. Highlights of Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices Related to Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Uganda: A Review of Literature (1995-2005)

The Capacity Needs Assessment (CNA) was planned, organized and conducted under the auspices of the USAID-funded Uganda Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) CORE Initiatives Project. The Project is implemented by a partnership made up of Care Uganda (lead), International HIV/AIDS Alliance (IHAA), International Centre for Research on Women (IWRC), and the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). Led by IHAA, the assessment was conducted from August to December 2005 nationwide, using a team of 12 persons. The purpose of the assessment was to determine MGLSD and district management and operational capacity needs in providing leadership and coordination, and monitoring and evaluating the national response to Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) and Abstinence and Behavioural change among the Youth (AB/Y). The findings from the assessment were to form the basis for developing a capacity building plan for MGLSD and districts.
