HIV update on family centred approaches


Aids Alliance

The Alliance has published the latest in its series of regular HIV updates. It summarises the key approaches, interventions and models of delivery that should be used when using a family centred approach to providing care and support for children affected by HIV and AIDS.

The Update  includes definitions of a family centred approach, the background and importance of the approach, how to reach marginalised children and families and how to implement, monitor and resource such approaches.
The author of the paper, Kate Iorpenda, Alliance Senior Adviser on Children and Impact Mitigation said: ‘This technical update synthesises Alliance thinking as well as the existing evidence, prior to us publishing more extended guidance in our forthcoming Good Practice Guide on this theme.’

The new Good Practice Guide for programmers is being produced in collaboration with Save the Children UK and will be published in early 2011.
