Integrating CABA into national development instruments
Inter-Agency Task Team on Children HIV and AIDS April 23-25 2007 Washington
Dr. Stuart Kean
Co-Chair UK OVC Working Group
“Conduct a review of national HIV/AIDS plans and development plans in countries where NPAs have been finalized to identify where children affected by HIV & AIDS are included as a priority group in development plans (ie PRSP, MTEF, etc.). The process should be conducted in partnership with country level actors and could be utilized to mobilize and strengthen civil society at country level.”
Undertake review of development instruments (NDPs, PRSPs, NSFs, METFs, SWAps), in sample of 16 countries with OVC NPAs
1. What have been the demonstrated benefits of including OVC (HIV/AIDS, children, vulnerable groups) in development instruments - the benefits need to be observed in the extent to which funds have been released for OVC, either domestic government and/or external donor funds?
2. Which of the development instruments have been most important in influencing the release of funds for OVC, both domestic and external?
3. What have been the key factors influencing the processes by which OVC (HIV/AIDS, vulnerable groups etc) have been included in the priority development instruments?
4. What strategies used & actions taken to overcome some of the potential problems encountered when integrating OVC into development instruments?
Disadvantages of integrating into PRSPs & MTEFs
