Synergies for child protection systems and children affected by HIV and AIDS

Until recently, child protection efforts tended to respond with stand alone programmes for specific groups of vulnerable children, such as HIV-affected children. The move towards strengthening child protection systems offers an opportunity to situate child-focused HIV responses within a long-term, locally-owned and sustainable approach. A study, commissioned by the Inter-Agency Task Team on Children Affected by AIDS, seeks to better understand ways that child protection systems can respond to the needs of children living with and affected by HIV and also explore how the children and HIV sector can give greater attention to child protection issues.
