International HIV/AIDS Alliance

‘This is the first in a series of seven ‘Building Blocks’ publications. It seeks to provide an overview of issues for communities working with orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. It is aimed at assisting policy-makers, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), community-based organisations (CBOs), local government and communities to respond to the needs of children affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa. There are seven briefing notes, comprising six topics and an overview : Health and nutrition; Livelihoods and economic strengthening; Education and training; Care and psychosocial support; and social inclusion protection. Each briefing note introduces issues and provides principles and strategies for guiding the response, while offering examples of best practice from programme experience. The strategies reflect international good practice and the experience of people working with orphans and vulnerable children in Africa
