HIV-related illnesses are a major cause of children dying, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, and are an obstacle to the international development goal to cut child mortality by two-thirds by 2015. International donors and national governments must make the rights of children to protection from HIV and its impacts a priority, and the response to HIV must be integrated into fair and effective health and protection systems. These illnesses are also an obstacle to the international development goal to cut child mortality by two-thirds by 2015.
Save the Children is calling on International donors and national governments to prioritise the children’s right to protection from HIV and its impacts.
This brief outlines:
– The problem
– How HIV in children be prevented
– HIV interventions and health systems
– The actions that must be taken
