This policy brief is for global donors and policy makers. It sets out what global policy changes are required, based on the latest evidence related to children and adolescents affected by HIV, and those working alongside them. It calls for action in nine areas including to integrate biomedical, social and economic support. Social protection, support for mental health, nurturing care for early childhood development, and child protection are especially needed alongside biomedical interventions.
