The Fifth Annual Report to Congress on Public Law 109-95, The Assistance for Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Developing Countries Act of 2005 has been released. The report highlights continued efforts made by the U.S. Government to improve coordination on behalf of vulnerable children. In keeping with the PL 109-95 mandate to coordinate and disseminate evidence-based best practices, the Secretariat is making strides to firmly and strategically integrate children's developmental protection within health, education and other sectors, thereby laying the groundwork for coordinated interventions that more effectively address the complex nature of children's risks and opportunities. The report also captures key outputs from the recent U.S. Government Evidence Based Summit on Protecting Children outside of Family Care. The full report can be found here (PDF).
