The results show that the three services of the NPFA: the service prevention, the treatment service and the service in load of orphans and vulnerable children are inefficient. The NPFA edge therefore increase the output of the prevention service by 1.9% while maintaining the same level of inputs. For the treatment service, its output edge be increased by 22% using the same level of inputs. Also, the service in load of orphans and vulnerable children edge increase its output by 23.5% with the same level of inputs.
