Description

In 2002, the Human Sciences Research Council was commissioned by the WK Kellogg Foundation to develop and implement a five-year intervention project focusing on orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in southern Africa. In collaboration with several partner organisations, the project currently focuses on how children, families and communities in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe are coping with the impact of HIV/AIDS. The aim of the project is to develop models of best practise so as to enhance and improve support structures for OVC in the southern African region as a whole.

This report forms part of a series that examines the work undertaken as part of the Kellogg OVC Intervention Project from 2002 to 2005.

The main goal of this particular study was to identify priorities or gaps for HIV/AIDS awareness, advocacy and policy-support intervention programmes that would be developed and implemented in Klerksdorp, South Africa to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS, particularly among Orphaned and Vulnerable Children.
