Understanding & Promoting Better Care

Understanding the Needs of Children Made Vulnerable by HIV and AIDS
 
Share

The following resources provide a comprehensive overview of the impact of HIV and AIDS on children and families and the interventions that have arisen in response to this issue. These resources build upon the growing recognition that responses to HIV and AIDS must center on increased support to families as the best means of providing care and protection for children.

In the future, these resources will be expanded to address other sources of vulnerability, such as poverty, disability and emergencies (such as natural disaster).
