  1. South African national HIV prevalence, incidence, behaviour and communication survey, 2008: the health of our children

    The main rationale for this study was to better understand the health status of South African children in relation to HIV. Children have not been adequately included in national health surveys such as the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), and this study allowed for the assessment of progress towards the realisation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the attainment of the National Strategic Plan targets in South Africa. …

  2. Demographic Impact of HIV/AIDS in Mozambique (Update 2000)

    Following the consensus on provincial, regional, and national HIV prevalence rates reached at the meeting of 6 September 2001, the Technical Group proceeded to update projections of the Demographic Impact of HIV/AIDS in Mozambique that were originally based on the 1998 epidemiological surveillance round.

  3. Excluded and invisible. The state of the world's children 2006

    This year, The State of theWorld's Children will focus on the millions of children for whom these pledges of a better world remain unfulfilled.

It also explains how, with the MDGs focused on national averages, children in marginalized communities risk missing out on essential services such as health care, education and protection. …

Other published projections are considerably smaller than this, however the data inputted into such projections excludes many children, due to difficulties in quantification. Yet, these children will be in need of the same levels of support as those who have been included in statistical tables. …

  5. Children on the brink 2004. A joint report of new orphan estimates and a framework for action

    This report contains the most current and comprehensive statistics on children orphaned by AIDS and other causes (appendix 1). Unlike previous editions of Children on the Brink, which included data for children under age 15, this edition provides data for children under age 18. This change brings the statistics in line with the international definition of childhood. It also recognizes that orphans and vulnerable children are not necessarily young children and that problems caused by orphaning extend well beyond age 15. …
