Social Protection

HIV-sensitive Social Protection - ESAR Report (2018)

HIV-sensitive Social Protection: With focus on creating linkages between social cash transfer programmes and HIV services describes an intervention aiming to strengthen the linkages between HIV services and national social protection programmes and provides lessons learned from implementing the intervention in four countries. The focus of the programme is on families with children and adolescents, vulnerable to, or affected by HIV and AIDS. The programme, funded by the Government of the Netherlands, is now being implemented in Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe in close collaboration with national, provincial and district level governments.

Women: At the Heart of the HIV Response for Children

Because HIV-related stigma persists, UNICEF takes steps to safeguard the identities of children and their mothers in accordance with their wishes and with global standards of child rights and protection. UNICEF obtains written consent from people living with the virus before identifying them as such in photographs and other media. Unless otherwise stated, people depicted in this publication, and in the accompanying materials online, should not be assumed to be living with HIV.

Clinic-Community Collaboration Toolkit: Working together to improve PMTCT and paediatric HIV treatment, care and support.

PATA and PACF have worked across 9 countries and strengthened 36 community-clinic collaborations through their partnership on the three-year C3 programme on collaboration between Clinics and Community-Based Organisations (CBOs) to deliver services together for improved PMTCT-paediatric case finding and HIV treatment.

 

Together, PATA and PACF have identified how clinical-CBOs collaboration at a local level can be in transforming health responses. They developed a Clinic-Community Collaboration Toolkit and accompanying Be Connected e-learning course informed by the C3 programme’s successes and lessons learnt.

 

Through these new tools, they hope to continue empowering health providers as well as encouraging community-based staff and local coordinators to initiate, expand and improve upon joint activities and action plans, in a collaborative effort to strengthen their work on paediatric and adolescent HIV.
