Children and HIV: Family Support First - Working Together to Achieve Universal Support and Access to Treatment is an international symposium that will present the latest evidence and share the latest models on family-centered care and services for children affected by HIV and AIDS. The underlying theme for the symposium is based on the findings of The Joint Learning Initiative on Children and AIDS which demonstrated how central and under-supported families are in their care of children affected by HIV and AIDS.
The two-day symposium, jointly hosted by The Teresa Group, the Coalition on Children Affected by AIDS (CCABA), and World Vision Austria, will be held on July 16th & 17th 2010 at the Austria Center in Vienna. The symposium will bring together close to 600 service providers, donors, researchers, advocates and policy leaders working within affected communities on national, regional and global platforms. It will promote opportunities for stronger linkages between program design and implementation, policy, research, and advocacy efforts.
This think-tank and networking opportunity is for anyone working on issues related to children and HIV/AIDS and is concerned about how to improve local, national and international responses.
