Survey and Pilot Audit of USAID’s Assistance to Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Selected HIV/AIDS Focus Countries.
Country: United States
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
According to USAID, more than 14 million children have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. These numbers will almost double over the next 10 years. The children often suffer from numerous and devastating disadvantages, and most households with orphans cannot meet the basic needs of health care, food, clothing, and educational expenses.
HIV/AIDS activities support host nations’ wide-ranging programs to meet the needs of more than 4 million orphans and vulnerable children affected by the pandemic. HIV/AIDS activities include material support, such as food, school fees, shelter, and clothing, in addition to counseling, psychological support, community care, and measures to strengthen the economy. The HIV/AIDS program provided $312 million of FY 2008 funding for programs to help orphans and vulnerable children in the 15 focus countries.
This audit will determine whether USAID’s HIV/AIDS activities to provide material support, counseling, psychological support, community care, and measures to strengthen the economy have helped orphans and vulnerable children.
