Social Protection Working Group

HIV-sensitive social protection

Children affected by AIDS have the same rights to essential services as non-HIV-affected children, but HIV often threatens their access to services because it impoverishes families and reduces the parents’ ability to care for their children as effectively as they would like. Efforts are required to ensure that vulnerable children have access to social services and to ensure that these services are HIV–sensitive.
