Children Affected by AIDS – Organizational Network Analysis

Project Description

In May 2010, The National Aids Control Organization (NACO) of the Government of India launched a Children Affected by AIDS (CABA) Pilot Scheme, to test guidelines on how to link and refer children infected and affected by HIV/AIDS to a range of care, support and protection services. An Organizational Network Analysis of the CABA Pilot Scheme in 4 states and 6 districts will study the effectiveness of collaboration and coordination between government departments and NGOs at the district level, and measure how this contributes to improved referrals and linkages needed to provide adequate services for orphans and vulnerable children. Organizational Network Analysis can be used to inform decisions about changes to organizational processes, help department leaders understand and direct information flows, and supply evidence for planning. Improving work processes can contribute to an expansion of services and benefits to HIV infected and affected children and their families.
