Abstract

"This report aims to illustrate how these approaches are used by SC UK to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS on children across South and South-East Asia and how we work with children to prevent the further spread of HIV/AIDS.
1) working with local communities and volunteers to provide a holistic approach to the HIV/AIDS situation within their community, involving raising awareness of HIV/AIDS, promoting positive behaviour change, improving the quality of support within the community for affected families, and reducing the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS; 2) working in partnership with governmental and non-governmental agencies to achieve effective and sustainable approaches to the HIV/AIDS epidemic; 3) developing culturally appropriate strategies to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and promote sustainable, positive, behaviour change; 4) promoting rights-based and value-based approaches to addressing HIV/AIDS within communities; 5) supporting and promoting the active participation of children and young people in the design and implementation of HIV/AIDS programmes."
