MSH Announces Redesigned Website for Those Working with Children and HIV
MSH is pleased to announce the recent upgrade of www.OVCsupport.net, a global knowledge-sharing hub on orphans, vulnerable children and HIV & AIDS.
www.OVCsupport.net is a virtual forum where community organizations, nongovernmental organizations, policy-makers, donors, governments, US government country teams, and academics can gather to share experiences, practices, and tools that relate to policy around and programming for children and HIV. Social networking tools and an interactive platform create space for greater dialogue, debate, and exchange. With improved navigation and search capabilities, the site also offers a vast range of high-quality technical resources.
Visit www.OVCsupport.net to discover these new or expanded features:
- News and exchange: the latest news articles as well as a place to share views and opinions, and comment on articles.
- Policy and research: contemporary findings and debates around policy initiatives or evidence generated through research and evaluation.
- Programming: key programming principles and technical areas for OVC including social protection, food and nutrition, educational support and vocational training, psychosocial support, shelter and care, health support, and economic strengthening.
- Library: a virtual resource center with more than 900 publications, toolkits, and materials from around the world.
- Discussions: a space for users to connect and exchange their promising practices, debate issues, and create dialogue.
The site welcomes input from all those working with children and HIV.
The AIDSTAR-Two project redesigned the site, with funding from the United States Agency for International Development, and is hosting and moderating the site. Led by MSH, AIDSTAR-Two offers systematic capacity-building assistance to US government field missions and local public- and private-sector organizations and networks funded by the President's Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
