Published in February 2009, this final report of the Joint Learning Initiative on Children and HIV/AIDS (JLICA) summarises its main results and recommendations, which focus on the following principles: support children through families; strengthen community action that backstops families; address family poverty through national social protection; and deliver integrated, family-centred services to meet children's needs. According to Chapter 1, a bold change in approach is necessary that: extends support and services to all children in need; builds policies and programmes that support extended family and community networks in caring for children; and tackles poverty and gender inequality, which strongly influence child outcomes and amplify the impact of HIV and AIDS on children.

This is a very interesting report as part of a series on Supporting Caregivers. I hope members will find time to read it.
