A Whole-of-Government Approach to Child Welfare and Protection

This report summarizes the U.S. Government’s response to the child protection emergency in Haiti and the role played by the Assistance for Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Developing Countries Act of 2005 secretariat. We also report on progress on priorities identified in last year’s annual report. Progress on several priorities was slower than planned due to the imperative need to devote most of our small team to the Haiti crisis.
