dc.description Paper delivered at Pretoria, 27-28 June en
dc.description.abstract Developing programs that significantly improve the lives of individual children and families affected by HIV/AIDS is relatively easy with enough resources, organizational capacity, and compassion. Vulnerable individuals and households can be identified, health services can be provided, school expenses of orphans can be paid, food can be distributed, and supportive counselling can be provided. Such interventions meet real needs, but the overwhelming majority of agencies and donors that have responded so far have paid too little attention to the massive scale of the problems that continue to increase with no end in sight. As programs to date have reached only a small fraction of the most vulnerable children in the countries hardest hit by AIDS, the fundamental challenge is to develop interventions that make a difference over the long haul in the lives of the children and families affected by HIV/AIDS at a scale that approaches the magnitude of their needs? en
