Local Subgrantees Need Codes of Conduct for Interactions with Orphans and Vulnerable Children - U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) Guidance July 2006

According to guidance issued by Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC), OGAC in July 2006, the guiding principles of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) program implementation are rooted in the principles of child protection: developing and implementing programs that place the best interests of the child and his or her family above all else.

Thus, programs should include efforts to confront and minimize the reality of stigma and social neglect faced by OVCs, as well as abuse and exploitation, including trafficking, theft of inherited property, and land tenure.

General Recommendations

  • Establish and document a standard code of conduct for all subgrantees with activities affecting orphans and vulnerable children, outlining appropriate and inappropriate conduct in dealing with children in the program.
