This Key list highlights essential information resources on international conventions and young children affected by HIV and AIDS. At policy levels, young children need to be included in programmes that address children, HIV and AIDS and community development. This was the theme at the international conference on early childhood development (ECD) in Asmara, Eritrea, 2002.

In addition, UNICEF experience suggests that a good ECD programme should have a broad framework, be developed with and for families and with and for communities, respecting cultural values and building local capacity. Also important is equal access for all children and a programme that is flexible and reflects diversity.
