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 an overview; Health and nutrition; Livelihoods and economic strengthening; Education and training; Care and psychosocial support; Social inclusion.
Children’s psychosocial and emotional needs are as important as their physical needs. Caring for a sick parent, living in an HIV or AIDS-affected household, or losing one or both parents, have a powerful effect on children’s psychological and emotional well-being. Programmes for children affected by HIV and AIDS should pay as much attention to children’s needs for love, affection and understanding as they do to their needs for shelter, food and clothing."
