HIV/AIDS has impacted more severely on Sub-Saharan Africa than any other region in the world. 25 million people are estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS and the problems facing children and their families living in communities affected by HIV/AIDS are many and varied. The infection rate has risen rapidly and the scale of prevalence is largely unabated. Moreover, the epidemic compounds existing problems that children and families face resulting from decades of exploitation, poverty, civil and regional conflict, and natural disasters. This report describes how governements and communities have responded to the epidemic so far.
