 Botswana Comprehensive Care for OVC Abstract:

Since 2016, the Botswana Comprehensive Care and Support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (BCCOVC) Project—funded by the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)—has supported the Government of Botswana (GOB) to deliver social services in seven PEPFAR priority sites. The BCCOVC project is implemented by Project Concern International (PCI) and builds on the previous PCI-implemented Tsela Kgopo OVC and Gender project (2011–2016). It supplements the core package of GOB services for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC): provision of food, school uniforms, clothes, shoes, and toiletry items to orphaned and vulnerable youth. Its goals are to increase uptake of HIV testing and other reproductive health services, strengthen economic opportunities for young people, and improve educational outcomes.
