Final report of the Joint Learning Initiative on Children and HIV/AIDS (JLICA)
The global fight against hiv and aids has changed the nature of public health action and the world’s expectations of what such action can achieve. But the aids fight has short-changed children. For more than a quarter-century, affected children have remained peripheral to the aids response by governments and their international partners. This report makes the case for redirecting the response to hiv and aids to address children’s needs more effectively. Drawing on the best body of evidence yet assembled on children affected by aids, it shows where existing approaches have gone off track and what should now be done, how, and by whom.
