Harnessing Social Protection to Reach All Children

Millions of children are out of the reach of HIV testing, treatment, and care services. Social protection is an important tool for bridging this gap. However, there is limited evidence on how it can protect and support vulnerable children and adolescents in testing, treatment and care. In an effort to help gather much-needed evidence, the Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS and ViiV Healthcare’s Positive Action launched the Reaching All Children Challenge and asked respondents to show evidence-based interventions demonstrating how social protection leads to HIVs testing, treatment and care for children in low and middle-income countries. The eight winners — highlighted in pages of this brochure — provided compelling evidence of programs that work.
