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 organizations, 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.

Promoting Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health in East and Southern Africa

In Africa, as in many parts of the world, adolescent reproductive health is a controversial issue for policy makers and programme planners. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to HIV and AIDS and to a host of other problems such as sexually transmitted infection, unwanted pregnancy, unsafe abortions, sexual abuse, female genital mutilation and unsafe circumcision. Yet many countries don't have adolescent health policies and much remains to be done to ensure that adolescents can access appropriate sexual and reproductive health services.

Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa

In this volume, experts including service providers, therapists, childrens advocates, and the research community summarise and evaluate the problem of the sexual abuse of prepubescent children in southern Africa. It is the first attempt to synthesise southern African research, treatment and policy literature on the topic. The book confronts the realities of sexual abuse, and its representation in the press. It presents the main findings concerning the individual, socio-economic and sociocultural correlates of sexual abuse, and covers legal and policy responses to the problem. It also presents accounts of interventions drawn from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

HIV/AIDS, Stigma and Children
A literature review

HIV/AIDS-related stigma has been recognised as a key problem that needs to be addressed in HIV/AIDS interventions with adults. The literature on children and HIV/AIDS is extensive, as is the literature on HIV/AIDS related stigma, but specific research on HIV/AIDS-related stigma and children is relatively sparse. This title provides a review of the available literature in this regard.
