4Children has prepared a series of case studies documenting the core components of the case management process within orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) programming and national child protection systems, in three different countries. These case studies aim to provide examples of how case management can be used to support work with vulnerable children and families affected by or living with HIV. The experiences, approaches, and tools used by the three different programs share some commonalities as well as challenges and lessons learned.
