Stigma and discrimination against children and youth infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS are a characteristic of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in many countries, particularly in the developing world. Little research has been done in South Africa to understand the extent of the discrimination and the impact that it has on children. As a response to this situation and in order to deliver programmes that address the real problem Save the Children (UK) commissioned a situational analysis of existing knowledge and responses to stigma and discrimination against children and youth infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. This report constitutes part of this situational analysis
and should be read in conjunction with the report written by Barrett-Grant and Strode.
