Abstract

Research objective: To gain a regional perspective of the extent to which children and households affected by HIV are being supported within existing national social protection frameworks in Asia-Pacific, the Economist Intelligence Unit, supported by UNICEF East Asia and the Pacific and South Asia regional offices, conducted a nine-country review across Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Thailand and Vietnam, spanning from September to December 2010. A set of child- and HIV-focused criteria were used to examine existing policies and programmes, with the goal of understanding country examples around implementation, funding, coverage, mechanisms for monitoring and delivery, and national priorities.
