REPSSI: Psychosocial support for orphans and vulnerable children

Over 16 million children worldwide have lost one or both parents to HIV and AIDS. In addition to those affected by chronic illness and death, many other children are confronted by the challenges of poverty and conflict. These vulnerable children often face material hardship, social stigma and psychosocial trauma. We risk losing a generation of children made vulnerable by poverty, conflict, HIV and AIDS.
