Rethinking ‘Vulnerability’ and Social Protection for Children Affected by AIDS

Published on 1 May 2007

Social protection as a response to child and livelihood vulnerability has the potential to become a crucial element of comprehensive strategies to tackling the HIV epidemic. However, there remains a need to better conceptualise vulnerability itself.

In this article, I critically reflect on some issues and gaps in targeting HIV-affected children and examine the thinking behind social protection for children in communities affected by HIV.
