Worldwide, the number of children under age 18 who have lost one or both parents to AIDS stands at more than 14.3 million. Many more children live with one or more chronically-ill parent. The vast majority of these children live in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite the recognition of the magnitude and negative consequences of this problem, there is little evidence on “what works” to improve the well-being of children affected by HIV and AIDS. Given the lack of information on the impact of care and support strategies for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), there is an urgent need to learn more about how to improve the effectiveness, quality, and reach of these efforts.
