OVI Healthcare

A World Where No Child is Alone

aka OVI Healthcare   |   Somerset, KY   |  https://ovihealthcare.org/

Mission

Every year, millions of children under five die from preventable causes like diarrhea, pneumonia, and malaria. And for every child that dies, even more, are permanently separated from their families and institutionalized in orphanages because of their fragile conditions. Our mission at OVI is to create a world where no child is abandoned or neglected due to illness or lack of resources for care. From our base, the OVI Children's Hospital in Migori, Kenya, we pioneer a new way of treating and caring for vulnerable children that we plan to introduce across Africa and Asia. The OVI team is 100% locally staffed with fifty Kenyan medical professionals, and a support staff intentionally made up of adult orphans, widows, and marginalized community members.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

OVI CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

We give life-saving treatment to children who need it, now. We show complete care that goes way beyond physical health. And we rebuild loving families, whenever possible preventing children from becoming institutionalized orphans. By understanding why children are abandoned, we work towards a future where no child is alone. Our local teams understand local children, guaranteeing our success and sustainability.

By understanding why abandonment happens, we can intervene when support is most needed and unite children with loving families. We help bereaved fathers find stability and support, so they don’t give up their children in despair. And we provide temporary care for the children of child brides, orphaned girls and other vulnerable mothers who want their children but can’t provide for them yet. Our goal is to prevent children being separated from their relatives and orphaned forever.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.


1. Utilize CVI data to advocate for policy changes requiring NHIF (health insurance) coverage for all Kenyan children living in orphanages and community institutions in the next one year.

To achieve the goal of requiring NHIF coverage for all Kenyan children living in orphanages and community institutions, we will need to work with lobbyists to advocate for the policy change. We can use the data from the CVI report to support our argument that all children should have access to health insurance and the imminent risks that institutionalized orphans face in their current living situations.

2. Utilize CVI data to demonstrate the need for prescriptive coverage of infant formula access for victims of maternal death aged 0-6 months in the next one year. 

To gain prescriptive coverage of infant formula for victims of maternal death aged 0-6 months, we will need to work with lobbyists and key stakeholders to develop a plan that outlines how this can be implemented. The CVI data can help us identify areas where this intervention is most needed and will be most effective.

3. Reduce the number of newly orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children in Kenya by 50% in the next five years. 

This goal will be achieved through targeted interventions such as family tracing and reunification, provision of essential services, community engagement, and preventative measures offered to families at a primary care level.

4. Increase the average Child Vitality Index scores of children in Kenya by 75% in the next five years.
 
CVI scores will be increased through investment in health and advocacy programs and improved data collection and analysis to better target interventions.

5. Increase the number of children successfully reintegrated into their local Kenyan communities by 100% in the next five years 

The number of children successfully reintegrated into their local Kenyan communities will be increased by 100% in the next five years through increased healthcare access, improved advocacy measures through the use of our Child Vitality Index, and efforts for policy change to equip Kenyan communities and organizations to provide support services needed to keep children safe and united with loving relatives.


Inputs: We provide donor-sponsored primary and hospital care, infant protection, remote medical camps. We also use predictive analytics and critical data collection.

Outputs: Improved healthcare access for at-risk children, predictive analytics and critical child vitality data to increase child visibility, accountability of child welfare programs, and to support appeals for policy changes in child health and protection.

Outcomes: Reducing child mortality, abandonment, neglect, and familial separations caused by a lack of access to healthcare and unnecessary institutionalization in orphanages. Identifying those who were most at risk and providing them with targeted intervention


Evidence: A study by the World Health Organization found that access to healthcare reduces child mortality rates by up to 50% (WHO). In addition, a number of studies have shown that institutionalization can have negative effects on a child’s development (Unicef). Therefore, providing healthcare services to vulnerable children can help protect them from the dangers of sickness, abandonment, neglect, and unnecessary institutionalization in orphanages.

From our base, the OVI Children's Hospital in Migori, Kenya, we pioneer a new way of treating and caring for vulnerable children that we plan to introduce across Africa and Asia. The OVI team is 100% locally staffed with fifty Kenyan medical professionals, and a support staff intentionally made up of adult orphans, widows, and marginalized community members who are intimately connected to the mission of our work.

Our unique approach combines essential healthcare and advocacy to keep children from becoming orphans in the first place. We also utilize our innovative Child Vitality Index (CVI) solution, a tool using predictive data and analytics to prevent child mortality, abandonment, and neglect on a primary care level.

To date, we have provided over 100,000 donor-sponsored overnight hospital stays for at-risk children and, when possible, reunited them with their families and enabled them to stay out of orphanages.
