Combating child labour and HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa - A review of policies, programmes, and projects in South Africa, the United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia to identify good practices. Paper No. 1
This report covers these linkages between the HIV/AIDS pandemic and child labour in South Africa, the United Republic of Tanzania, and Zambia. It complements Rapid
Assessments in these countries to gather qualitative data on the links between child labour and HIV/AIDS. Significant efforts are being made in the three African countries to understand and respond to the linkage, or at least to one component of the relationship. This review presents many examples of both response models and specific examples of responses to both HIV/AIDS and child labour. The ability to learn from and expand “good practices” depends critically on more focused government attention to the pandemic and its impact on children, including the stigma and discrimination they face.
