Abstract

"The International HIV/AIDS Alliance, with funding from USAID, has produced this series of practical briefing notes to assist policy-makers, programme managers, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), community-based organisations (CBOs), local government and communities to respond to the needs of children affected by HIV and AIDS1 in Asia. The briefing notes focus on how programmes can strengthen the capacity of children, families and communities. They do not include general information on HIV and AIDS, as this is available in many other publications. These briefing notes are part of a set of seven, comprising six topics and this overview: Health and nutrition; Livelihoods and economic strengthening; Education and training; Care and psychosocial support; Social inclusion; Protection. All these areas are important and should be considered together in an integrated response. Each briefing note introduces issues, and provides principles and strategies for guiding the response, while also 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 Asia. Some
of the guides also include case studies from Africa to illustrate practical actions that can be taken.
