Summary
No generation is spared the catastrophic consequences of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. From newborn babies of HIV-positive mothers to elderly caregivers, the disease does not discriminate. One of the most tragic consequences is the toll on children. In 2003, more than 15 million children under age 18 had lost one or both parents to AIDS. Along with grief and abandonment, children in affected families face the added burdens of responsibilities far beyond their capabilities--nursing a sick or dying parent, raising younger siblings, running the household or family farm, replacing a breadwinner, or struggling for survival on city streets. An estimated 5 percent of children affected by HIV/AIDS worldwide have no support and are living on the streets or in residential institutions. Globally, approximately 2.1 million children under age 15 have HIV/AIDS. ... This fourth edition of USAID project profiles: children affected by HIV/AIDS presents profiles of 114 projects (90 country-specific, 12 regional, and 12 global) funded by USAID. The diversity of these projects demonstrates the determination of the U.S. government--and specifically USAID--to meet the wide variety of needs of children and adolescents affected by HIV/AIDS. Documenting their activities is designed to promote an exchange of ideas and information, leverage technical and financial resources, and encourage partnerships, collaboration, and coordination among programs supported by USAID, other U.S. agencies, new partners, and other donors. This report contains information provided by the projects in the spring and summer of 2004. It does not, however, reflect the full extent of U.S. government support at the end of 2004 for orphans and vulnerable children
