Child centred approaches to HIV and AIDS

SOURCE INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION SUPPORT CENTRE
2006

Expand view

This Key list highlights essential information resources on child centred approaches to HIV and AIDS. The resources in this key list are crosscutting in theme and explore the importance of young children’s participation in planning, implementing and evaluative processes. They attempt to address the question: "what can be done to include very young children in programming and policy responses in HIV and AIDS affected communities?" Although early childhood development programmes and resources are acknowledging the ability of young children to communicate and participate, methodologies to address issues of HIV and AIDS are few. Communication with children needs to take place, not only to inform processes of interventions that support them and their caregivers, but also to encourage openness around difficult subjects like HIV and AIDS status and death. This approach ensures attention to all children including those that can be excluded from policy such as nomadic children, children from religious and indigenous minorities or disabled children

Memory work: further resources

SOURCE INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION SUPPORT CENTRE
2006

Expand view

This Key list highlights useful and practical resources on memory work, and forms the 'further resources' section of the Memory work trainers manual (Healthlink Worldwide and NACWOLA, 2006). Memory work is a community-led approach to encourage families to communicate openly about HIV. It helps parents look at how to disclose their HIV status to their children, record important information in 'memory books', and plan for the future. The memory work approach is designed to evolve, responding to the changing needs and circumstances of communities -- for example, the increasing access to antiretroviral therapy. However, the focus of memory work on disclosing of HIV status and improving communication between parents and children remains key in an environment where people are living longer with HIV

Psychosocial support and counselling for young children affected by HIV and AIDS

SOURCE INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION SUPPORT CENTRE
2005

Expand view

This is a key list of essential information resources on psychosocial support and counselling for children affected by HIV and AIDS. Recognising psychosocial needs in young children affected by HIV and AIDS is relatively new. It refers to the psychological and emotional well-being of the child and the caregiver, including issues of self esteem, insights into adaptation to the new circumstances brought by the impact of HIV and AIDS, social functioning and social relationships. Psychosocial support is one way of increasing the capacities of young children and their caregivers to cope. Manuals and toolkits in this Key list seek to heighten critical awareness of the cultural and ethical issues associated with psychosocial work. They encourage people to think of locally used words and expressions and of how young children express themselves as social beings

HIV/AIDS and disability

SOURCE INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION SUPPORT CENTRE
2004

Expand view

This Key list highlights essential information resources on HIV and AIDS and disability. In recent years, research has identified HIV and AIDS as a significant and relatively unrecognised problem among disabled populations worldwide. The research has demonstrated that people with disabilities are at risk of HIV infection; women with disability, disabled members of ethnic and minority communities, disabled adolescents, and disabled people who live in institutions are particularly at risk. In addition, HIV and AIDS educational, testing and clinical programmes remain largely inaccessible to people with disabilities. Over the last few years awareness of the importance of such work has increased, more HIV projects with a disability focus are being initiated and more resources are becoming available

HIV/AIDS and early childhood development (ECD)

SOURCE INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION SUPPORT CENTRE
2004

Expand view

This Key list highlights essential information resources on HIV and AIDS and early childhood development. Very young children living in HIV/AIDS affected communities are often ignored in development and HIV/AIDS policy and programming responses. Children aged 0-8 are at a critical stage of their development and need to receive adequate nutrition, healthcare, educational and psychosocial support. Families and communities under pressure to cope with the impact of the pandemic find it difficult to meet all of their developmental needs. This list of resources includes evidence of the need to address the needs of very young children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in development interventions and strategies at community, national and international levels. There are suggestions on how this could be achieved including key tools, manuals and case studies of current work
