In November of 2003, the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and the WK Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) hosted a colloquium to present and review the research that the HSRC has conducted with the support of the Foundation in projects across six southern African countries namely, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. The two-day event was designed to cover the two focal areas of the work; thus the first day focused on the policy research that has been done across the six countries in southern Africa, and the second day looked at the work that has been done with orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The colloquium was seen as an opportunity to report back to the WKKF and to local stakeholders, including representatives from government, service providers in health and social development, state policy and regulatory bodies, academics and researchers, intervention workers from both NGOs and state services, policy makers and interested advocates around policy and children.Work at the colloquium was directed at using the forum to facilitate as much discussion and debate as possible. The event was also designed to serve as a space for networking and social connection between all the organisations involved.
