There is global consensus that the best psychosocial care and support for children orphaned and made vulnerable by HIV is provided through everyday interpersonal interactions that occur in caring relationships in homes, schools, and communities. Such care and support include the love and protection that children receive in family environments, as well as interventions that help children and families cope. Such interventions enable children to form a sense of self-worth and belonging and are essential to learning, developing life skills, participating in society, and having hope in the future. Although all children benefit from psychosocial support, research has shown that such support is particularly critical for the health and development of children affected by HIV.
