Enhanced Protection for Children Affected by AIDS

Cover Image
AUTHOR Candace Miller and Aaron Greenberg
TYPE Thematic Report
DATE 2007
TOPIC Child-sensitive social protection

This companion paper to The Framework provides additional information and outlines recommended actions for protecting affected children from increased vulnerability, and for reducing their increased risk of abuse, exploitation and neglect. Actively seeking the perceptions and experiences of children in these circumstances is key to supporting their resilience and agency. Protection also requires strengthening government authorities that hold the bulk of responsibility, so they can more efficiently provide oversight and coordination. This responsibility often falls to government social welfare agencies but may include agencies for health, education and other sectors. Priority actions needed in each of these areas are detailed in this document.
