Supporting HIV/AIDS-affected children

By Our Staff Correspondent

NEW DELHI, MARCH 30. Governmental and non-governmental organisations today committed themselves to protecting, caring and supporting children affected by and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. They have recommended a comprehensive national policy to guide the developments in this area besides strengthening the existing policies and regulatory framework by a coordinated approach.

Endorsing the "Delhi Commitment" adopted after the two-day national consultation on HIV-affected children here today, the Ministries of Human Resource Development Health and Family Welfare, U.N. agencies and Faith-based groups re-dedicated themselves to strengthening capacity of families to protect and care for orphans and vulnerable children.

The commitment also asks the signatories to mobilise and support community-based responses by focussing on the most vulnerable children who are not in households and re-integrating them into a household setting. It also ensures access to essential services for such children by improving the provisions of care and services to vulnerable children and families.
