Abstract

The report forms part of a project funded by the WK Kellogg Foundation to implement a strategy for the care of orphans and vulnerable children in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. It reviews the available scientific and programmatic information on interventions aimed at children, families, households and communities. Specifically, the reports considers: 1. home-based child-centred development programmes focussing on health and nutrition; 2. psychosocial care and management of inherited assets; 3. interventions directed at supporting families and households to cope with the HIV/AIDS problem and 4. interventions directed at building the capacities of communities to provide long-term care and support for children and households. It also contains a valuable annotated bibliography of available literature in this area.
