The purpose of this case study is to outline how the ASPIRES project designed a vulnerability assessment for the context of Côte d’Ivoire and for the needs of the USAID Health Office’s PEPFAR-funded Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) programs, demonstrate the process of the appropriate selection of tools and methods, and share lessons learned from the experience. It does not cover study implementation or analysis, which are described in the article published on this study (see article here: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0163285). Although informative for other types of vulnerability assessments, this case study most clearly illustrates how vulnerability assessment works in the context of PEPFAR programming for OVC.
