Protecting Childhood in the AIDS Pandemic

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines interventions for children aged 0-5 who are affected directly and indirectly by HIV/AIDS. The contribution uses a child development framework to assess the specific vulnerabilities of young children at different ages when they are either infected with HIV or affected by the disease, and the specific interventions that can be used to address these vulnerabilities, depending on the developmental stage of the child. It also includes examples of successful programs in countries with high HIV prevalence, as well as an analysis of the gaps in our knowledge of what works.

Keywords:   HIV/AIDS, child development, developmental stages, children aged 0-5, programs, knowledge gaps
