  • In November 2004, Uganda‚Äôs cabinet of ministers adopted a policy on orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) following three years of organised and structured data collection, analysis, stakeholder workshops, and other efforts to which the POLICY Project contributed. POLICY offered to further examine the adequacy of existing laws and policies for meeting needs of OVC and to assess the degree to which existing laws and policies are implemented, identify weaknesses in enforcement provisions and institutional arrangements, and make recommendations for responding to legal-policy gaps and strengthening enforcement mechanisms. Part One of this summary describes the first study of legal-policy issues and Part Two describes the analysis and recommendations regarding the National Council for Children. The full reports of the studies can be obtained upon request from the POLICY/Uganda or POLICY/DC office.
