A Foot In The Door

In 2009, King and colleagues identified the need for more efficient evaluative research into the effects of interventions on children affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2016, Skeen and colleagues as part of this study, reviewed the literature that has been published subsequent to this and identified 17 new interventions that adequately examined the psychosocial wellbeing of children affected by HIV and AIDS. Fifteen showed benefits of an intervention program. Thus, research is starting to emerge that highlights the benefits of intervention involvement.

This is the final report that Lorraine Sherr and colleagues wrote on Community Based Support on Child Wellbeing in HIV Affected Communities, including data from World Vision's Community Care Coalitions, which Lorraine presented to the Global Health CoP in 2016.
